Day 27 South Africa Lockdown

Very interesting speech by Ramaphosa yesterday. The lockdown will be slightly eased. Well, that was to be expected. They cannot keep the economy on standstill. Especially in a country like South Africa which has nothing to fall back onto. Years of corruption have bled it dry. However, I'm positively surprised how the Corona crisis has been handled here. It seems like the government has been watching the rest of the world, learned from its mistakes and adopted the measures that seemed to have worked elsewhere. It's still too early to know where this will end. But I'm hopeful.
