Three hundred and Sixty Three Angolans have returned back to their country months after been stranded in the Republic of Congo and DR Congo since the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in March.
The returnees were welcomed back to the northern Cabinda Province of the country by the Angolan deputy consul in Muanda, Congo Central Province (DRC), Felisberto Zua, and the municipal administrator of Cabinda, Berta Marciano.
Speaking at the event, Zua said the repatriation process happened in a normal manner, further stressing that there are still many compatriots who are willing to return to Angola.
Meanwhile, the number of coronavirus infections globally has rise to 25,406,588 with 850,878 deaths recorded. Angola has recorded 2,624 infections and 107 deaths
United States, which has the highest case tally of any country, infection numbers are nearing six million, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University updated on Sunday night.
Brazil has the second-highest number of cases, at almost 3.9 million, followed by India, which has recorded more than 3.5 million.
The U.S. has the highest number of COVID-19 deaths, at more than 183,000, followed by Brazil with more than 120,000 and Mexico with over 64,000.
The figures from the Baltimore-based University put global deaths at more than 845,000.
The Johns Hopkins tracker website is regularly updated with incoming figures and tends to show higher numbers than those officially counted by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
However, in some cases, figures have been later corrected downwards.
Experts expect that official numbers do not reflect the full picture of the spread of the coronavirus, as it is unlikely all COVID-19 deaths and cases of infection have been recorded.
