Glimpse of life after lockdown

COVID-19 has drastically altered the way we live now, and it will continue to do so in the future as people become more aware of the everyday preventative measures they need to take.
Professor Salim Abdool Karim, an epidemiologist and infectious disease specialist working with the government in the fight against the coronavirus, says there will be no return to normal. 
"We are going to have to learn to live in a way where we will lose that soft touch that comes from being close to those we love, those we care about, because in order to protect them we are going to have to keep some distance,” Karim said.

Universities prepare for online learning from Monday

As the country proactively fights the spread of COVID-19, some universities are hitting the ground rolling, moving to online learning from Monday in a bid to save the academic year. 

Among the institutions switching to remote online teaching and learning from Monday 20 April are Wits, UJ, Tuks, Stellenbosch University and UCT.

Informal settlement dwellers begin to feel the pinch

Residents of the Lenasia South informal settlement in Johannesburg say they are worried what impact the extended lockdown will have on their pockets. 

Many said they did not know where their next salary would come from, adding they feared their cupboards would soon be empty. 

Some residents, who spoke to News24 on Wednesday, said they last received their monthly or weekly payments in the first phase of the lockdown before President Cyril Ramaphosa added an extra 14 days.

Limpopo man in jail for allegedly selling fake permits

A 31-year-old man appeared in the Thohoyandou Magistrate's Court in Limpopo on Wednesday for allegedly pretending to be a police officer and selling fake essential service permits to be used during the national lockdown.

Phathutshedzo Ramabulana appeared on two counts: fraud, and contravening regulation 11B(1)(a) of the lockdown period. The regulation stipulates that every person must be confined to their place of residence, unless strictly for the purpose of performing an essential service.
