Here’s what is happening in and affecting South Africa today:

CoronavirusGlobal Covid-19 infections have hit 38.6 million confirmed, with the death toll reaching 1,093,000. In South Africa, there have been 1,770 new cases, taking the total reported to 698,184. Deaths have reached 18,309 (a daily increase of 158), while recoveries have climbed to 628,301, leaving the country with a balance of 51,574 active cases.

  • Credibility: President Ramaphosa’s economic recovery plan presented on Thursday says nice things, but analysts have again called into question government’s biggest issue: credibility. Commentators have noted that policy paralysis has been a hallmark of government for about a decade, and the president gave no indication of why this time would be any different, or how this paralysis will be broken. The reviews seem to settle on the same conclusion: all talk and no action. [702Daily Maverick, ENCA]
