POLITICAL WEEK AHEAD: Expect response to the pandemic to dominate again
President now expected to address the nation again on Monday
SA’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic will remain the main focus in the political week ahead.
Though the government declared a national state of disaster last week to curb the spread of the virus, the infection rate has increased rapidly in the past seven days. The number of infections in the country were less than 100 when President Cyril Ramaphosa declared the state of disaster last week, but the tally has since risen to 240 confirmed infections.
