It is predicted that South Africa will experience the peak of COVID-19 in September 2020. As we prepare to come out of the first lockdown later this week there is much on our minds, many unknowns, and challenges to comprehend. Together though we can (and will) get through it all.

We are currently under level 4 restriction in South Africa, at the time of writing this blog. Our economy is starting to open up gradually and businesses are implementing strict measures to ensure they comply with requirements that allow workforces to return to operation. Many businesses are also allowing their employees to continue working from home and Twitter has announced that they have updated their company policy to allow their team to work from home permanently.

Within the CN&CO network we have been exposed to leading thinkers who have unpacked the impact COVID-19 will have on us.

  • Intellidex provided a special briefing that explored the South African government’s R500bn economic stimulus package and the phased lockdown relief. Read more here.
  • As part of InsureTalk1, we had a presentation about the State of SA AC,  by Graeme Codrington. You can watch the full talk here.
