Burkina Faso hospitals struggle with new wave of COVID-19

Ousseni Yanogo, 63, sits on his bed at Ouagadougou’s Bogodogo Medical Teaching Hospital Thursday Feb. 4, 2021. Yanogo contracted COVID-19 at his 6-year-old grand-daughter’s birthday. Since November, the conflict-riddled West African nation of Burkina Faso faces a much deadlier second coronavirus wave than the first and health officials worry a lack of knowledge and adherence to coronavirus measures is making it hard to rein in.
