CAF president, Ahmad Ahmad, has stated that African football must wait till the coronavirus pandemic is over.
He said health comes first before football and as such, it is better that the pandemic is managed and curtailed before football resumes in the continent.
He said: “As we see the ratio of tests that have been carried out in these countries, it is always alarming because we lack visibility in the management of this pandemic.
“There is a lack of visibility. We must wait. As president, I invite everyone to be very careful and wait for the situation to normalize. But beyond that, I do not want football to be a source of destabilization for the precautionary measures taken by the various governments to deal with the pandemic.
“The whole world is facing a very important health crisis, and every country on the continent of Africa has its own way of dealing with it.
“We have taken to stop football activities altogether. Our priority is first and foremost health, protecting players, protecting officials, and protecting the public.”
Ahmad further stated that CAF would remain cautious until the situation is stable.
