Many fear that now that South Africa has officially moved into Level 1 of lockdown, a second wave of Covid-19 will be seen and the battle will start all over again. Prof Shabir Madhi, from Wits University has given us a look into whether a second wave will occur and also where the country stands with the vaccine.
Today marked the first official day of Lockdown Level 1 which sees South Africans gain more freedom as we inch towards our normal lives, or rather our new normal lives. Health Minister of South Africa, Zweli Mkhize, does not want citizens to become careless now as we move to the lowest level of this National Lockdown.
Regular South African citizens aren't the only ones hoping that Lockdown Level 1 comes into effect soon but so does the country's health minister. Mkhize seems very optimistic that it might happen sooner than we thought as statistics shows us many positives.
