Background

On 12 January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that a novel coronavirus was the cause of a respiratory illness in a cluster of people in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China, which was reported to the WHO on 31 December 2019. [3] [4]

The case fatality ratio for COVID-19 has been much lower than SARS of 2003, [5] [6] but the transmission has been significantly greater, with a significant total death toll. [7] [5] Model-based simulations for Burundi indicate that the 95% confidence interval for the time-varying reproduction number R t exceeded 1 during the first half of 2021 but diminished to around 0.7 during the second half of 2021. [8]

March 2020

Burundi's Health Minister Thadée Ndikumana confirmed the country's first two cases of coronavirus disease 2019 on 31 March, Burundi nationals travelling back from Rwanda and Dubai respectively. [9]

April 2020

On 5 April, a further positive case was confirmed, a 39-year-old woman, while 7 other people tested negative. [10] In total there were 20 new cases in April, bringing the number of confirmed cases to 18. One patient died (14 April) and 8 recovered, leaving 6 active cases at the end of the month. [11]

May 2020

On 12 May, the foreign ministry of Burundi addressed a letter to WHO's Africa headquarters, ordering four officials coordinating the coronavirus response to leave the country. The letter said the four individuals "are declared persona non grata and as such, must leave the territory of Burundi" by 15 May. The health minister reportedly accuses WHO of "unacceptable interference in [the country's] management of the coronavirus". [12]

On 28 May, First Lady Denise Bucumi-Nkurunziza tested positive for COVID-19. [13]

There were 48 new cases in May, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 63. The death toll remained unchanged. 29 cases were active at the end of the month. [14]

June 2020

On 8 June,late President Pierre Nkurunziza died of what was described as a heart attack in a government statement. However, with government authorities accused of deliberately covering up the scope of the pandemic, and in the wake of unconfirmed reports that his wife was flown to Kenya 11 days before, having contracted COVID-19, [15] some have speculated that the president died of COVID-19. [16]

Vaccinations

Through most of 2021, Burundi was one of three countries which refused to have vaccines. In February 2021, Thaddee Ndikumana, the health minister of Burundi, said his country was more concerned with prevention measures. "Since more than 95% of patients are recovering, we estimate that the vaccines are not yet necessary," local media reported. [36] In October 2021, however, the Burundian government announced that it had received delivery of 500,000 doses of the Chinese Sinopharm BIBP vaccine. [37] A targeted vaccination programme commenced on 18 October 2021.

Prevention

On 12 March, the government instituted 14-day quarantining for people entering Burundi from affected countries. [38] [39]
