Paper long abstract:

The objective of this communication is to focus on the perception of the Covid 19 pandemic in Africa, to determine the modes of operation introduced and the transformations that have enabled the continuity of activities during confinement. The aim is also to understand and analyze the strengths, constraints and behaviors faced with the restrictions and changes induced following the spread of the Virus. The COVID 19 pandemic was perceived at the beginning of its appearance as an evil that does not concern Africa. "The virus cannot grow or survive in Africa, it is the continent of the sun." Especially since the first infected with the virus were foreigners from Europe or Africans living in Europe. From an anthropological approach, the study intends to highlight the readjustments of researchers and other actors (politicians, civil society, etc.) in a pandemic situation.
