With the increasing need for public awareness and more targeted information around the coronavirus, The South Africa Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) is urgently expanding its News and Current Affairs services on free-to-air television channels, effective immediately.

All relevant media briefings and other communications relating to the coronavirus, will be carried live on SABC 2 and/or SABC 3. The specific channel for transmission will be announced once the information becomes available to ensure the whole population urgently gets access to critical public messaging. This will be in addition to other targeted news and information slots that have been introduced recently.

The public broadcaster is part of nationwide efforts to preserve lives”.
