As of March 12, 2020, malaria-endemic regions in Africa have reported a few imported COVID-19 cases including in Nigeria, Senegal, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Africa needs to be prepared to deal with COVID-19, given the infectious potential of the disease and its capacity to undermine malaria control efforts.  There are lessons that can be learned from the 2014-2016 Ebola Outreak which undermined malaria control efforts in Africa. These lessons can be applied to the COVID -19 Outbreak.
