Nobel winner Denis Mukwege said he had resigned as head of a coronavirus taskforce in an eastern province of DR Congo, blaming organisational problems, outpaced strategy and slow testing.     

In a statement, he said there had been “weaknesses in organisation and clarity between the various teams in charge of the response to the pandemic in South Kivu.”     

“We are at the start of an exponential … curve [in infections] and we can no longer apply a strategy that would be purely preventive,” Mukwege said.

“I have decided to resign … in order to devote myself entirely to my medical duties and to treat the influx of patients at Panzi hospital.”
