Informal traders’ income severely impacted due to cigarette ban

25 May 2020 6:59 AM

Bongani speaks to Rosheda Muller, SAITA President.


Last night, President Cyril Ramphosa announced that the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products will remain banned as the entire country transitions to level 3. The South African Informal Traders Alliance (SAITA) has responded, calling on Government to urgently lift the ban on cigarette sales.

The organization states a continued ban until Level 1 will put informal traders on the street, adding to Government’s already enormous social grant burden. SAITA is the national voice of informal trade in South Africa.

Cigarette sales make up a sizable portion of the average informal traders’ sales, and in many cases, 100% of sales. Banning cigarettes will put millions of South Africans at risk, and rob them of their dignity, says SAITA.

The global coronavirus pandemic has brought renewed interest and focus on scientific models.

Dr Sue joins us to help us gain more understanding about what models are, how they work, and their usefulness and limitations. She how these models help us understand how science and human choices interact, providing valuable insight for policymakers.

The report on the outbreak of Coronavirus in St Augustine Hospital in KZN

21 May 2020 8:39 AM

Bongani speaks to Craig Murphy, Netcare Regional Director.

The findings of the investigation into the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak that led to the closure of Netcare St Augustine’s Hospital in Durban will be released today, 20 May 2020.  The investigation found that between 9 March and 30 April 2020, there were 119 confirmed cases identified at St. Augustine’s Hospital (39 patients and 80 staff). Fifteen of the 39 patients died (case fatality rate 38.5%).

The most plausible explanation for the outbreak is that there was a single introduction of the severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) to the hospital in early March, most likely through transmission from a patient being assessed for COVID-19 in the emergency department to another patient being admitted at the same time with a suspected stroke. The virus then spread widely through the hospital, involving patients and health care workers on at least five different wards
