We take this pandemic day by day but it will evidently have long term effects on the Higher Education sector and the country as a whole. Four possible strategies have been predicted in terms of life at Universities pre- and post-Covid by the University of Pretoria's Vice-Chancellor.


A high school in the North West has seen classes being disrupted for weeks after students saw fault with how the school's management handled Covid-19 cases at the school. With Covid-19, delays and disruptions were naturally there and now as classes resume, having any other delays could be detrimental to learners' education.


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.


Covid-19 and the resulting National Lockdown has affected every aspect of the country immensely, but how have students from historically black Universities been affected? Have they been coping? Are they on par with the rest of the higher education sector?
