Pienessä Burundin tasavallassa oli keskiviikkona surulipus, koska maan presidentti Pierre Nkurunziza oli menehtynyt oletettavasti COVID-19-tautiin. Virallista vahvistusta 55-vuotiaan Pierre Nkurunzizan kuolinsyystä ei ole, mutta hänen leskensä Denise Bucumi oli ollut nairobilaisessa sairaalassa hoidettava juuri koronavirustartunnan takia. Nkurunziza on ensimmäinen edelleen virassa ollut valtion päämies, joka on kuollut COVID-19-tautiin kaikkiaan yli 412 000 uhria vaatineen koronakriisin aikana.
