UPDATE: IMPACT OF COVID-19 VIRUS ON THE HIGHER EDUCATION SECTOR
For over 50 days we have been living in a time of national lockdown. These are extraordinary times as all South Africans, and other nations, confront the threat of the Covid-19 virus. The lockdown was extended to 30 April 2020 on Level 5. On 1 May 2020 we moved to lockdown Level 4. There are signals from government that we may soon be easing the lockdown further, but this is not certain. What we do know is that all sectors of society are required to continue to slow the spread of the virus to save lives and minimise the damage to our society and economy.
