‘Hard lockdown is no longer sustainable in its current form’ — Mkhize (South Africa)

“Health Minister Zweli Mkhize reviews the rationale for the country’s coronavirus lockdown, outlining South Africa’s initial trajectory in cases, which was similar to that of the United Kingdom. Although the lockdown worked to reduce the rate of new infections and allowed the country to roll out screening and testing programmes, it is no longer sustainable given its socio-economic risks.”
