Bad News For Ramaphosa, "The Third Wave Could Hit Earlier Than Expected " Experts Say

Looking at what the experts are saying, the third wave might not be a myth after all but rather a reality. During the President's adress to the nation, Cyril Ramaphosa mentioned that the country would move from level 3 to level 1.

This is a good thing, there's nothing wrong with it, however experts fear that easing the lockdown just before Easter could lead to an earlier third wave.


Professor Shabir Madhi, the professor of vaccinology, from the University of Wits says that South Africa is likely to see resurgence of Covid-19 infections towards May.

“If we allow mass gatherings towards Easter, we might see a resurgence at the beginning of May. Predictions were that we might see it about June as we head into winter,” he said.

He also stated that the imperative for the year 2021 should be based on the vaccination of those who are prone to getting the virus much easily.

Well, we all just hope that what the President said happens smoothly with no disturbances as he said that the general population will start getting vaccinated from late April to early May.

Please be responsible during this Easter holiday, no one wants to go back to level 5 again. Don't endanger the lives of others.
