It has been over 2 months since the last time the president of South Africa held one of his national addresses, also known as the family meeting. The last time this happened, Cyril Ramaphosa was moving the country down to level one of the lockdown. He explained that cases had reduced drastically and it was time for more freedoms to be given to South Africans but they believed it was because of the elections. Now the country is suspecting another family meeting is coming
The country is now registering very high number of cases for the month. Just yesterday South Africa register about 1,200 new infections. This was the first time it broke the thousand infection Mark this November. This has surely been a reason for concern for most South Africans.
It's seems the early stages of the fourth wave it's showing itself. The next few weeks will definitely change the way South Africans have been living for the past few weeks. South Africa might be in for another family meeting in which the 4th wave will officially be announced. We have seen this happen with the past two waves and the second wave was announced during the start of December. With that being said, the same pattern could repeat itself in the next few weeks.
The graph of current infection below shows that the fourth wave is slowly being formed as we are seeing a turning point at the end of the Third Wave. It is likely that a strict lockdown is going to be implemented to try and mitigate the effects of the fourth wave as early as possible. This could mean that South Africa will be going to level 2 of the lockdown to try and re-evaluate the situation.
What is your take on the matter?
