The Impact of COVID-19 in South Africa

“The onset of COVID-19 in South Africa has brought to the fore systemic weaknesses in the quality of service delivery such as water and sanitation services, housing, healthcare, and infrastructure in various communities across the country… The pandemic has also shone a spotlight on the effectiveness (or lack thereof) and responsiveness of financial tools such as unemployment insurance funds and credit life insurance policies, and raised questions about the overall flexibility and robustness of South Africa’s financial system in dealing with the impact and aftermath of such a multifaceted and rapidly evolving crisis.”
