Salim Abdool Karim said : “But we don’t know whether the antibodies will prevent a new infection from occurring.

Salim Abdool Karim said ( about Cyril Ramaphosa ) : "magic, she said. Business was good in January and February, and projections for the rest of 2020 were excellent. Then the coronavirus brought everything to an abrupt halt. Dlamini was confined to her small home under a strict lockdown, with few options for earning money. Millions of other South Africans share in the same misfortune. The country with the continent's most developed economy also has its highest number of confirmed infections more than 21,000, representing 20 per cent of Africa's total. And because the disease may not hit its peak for four more months, leaders expect to spend an especially long time balancing the risks to public health with the economic activity essential to the national welfare. We must save lives and livelihoods, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said this month an address to the nation. So far, South Africa has not seen the explosion of virus infections that emerged in Europe. One possible contributing factor is the country's youthful population, with just 3 per cent of people above the age of 60, say several health experts. Africa's small elderly population may help explain why the disease is spreading relatively slowly across the continent. South Africa is still in the early stages of the pandemic, leading health experts to predict the peak could come as late as August or September. A surge of cases in Cape Town suggests that city might reach its maximum near the end of June. The forecasts portend a lengthy wait to resume normal activity. Other African countries appear to be on a similar trajectory. Forty-three of the continent's 54 nations have imposed containment measures, including lockdowns, bans on public gatherings, school closures and curfews. The lockdown that began March 27 in South Africa is increasing tensions in Soweto, said Dlamini, who closed her tourism business. People are destitute and feeling desperate, Dlamini said. It's heartbreaking and scary. I tell friends that we must get through this hard time, that a vaccine will be found and we can get back to business. ... But right now, it's hard. With 25 bicycles, a vehicle and a trailer sitting idle, Dlamini decided to move into something entirely new. She is now selling meat products from her car to Soweto residents. Ribs, pork trotters, beef bones these are all popular, she said. People are calling me for repeat orders, so business is looking good. Five weeks into the lockdown, South Africa began a gradual easing on May 1, allowing selected mines, factories and businesses to reopen with up to 30 per cent of employees. Restaurants can serve takeaway meals, and people are permitted to walk outside for exercise from 6 am to 9 am. But the economy, already in recession, keeps plummeting. The unemployment rate was at a staggering 29 per cent even before the virus hit, and the jobless rate could rise to 50 per cent, according to the Chamber of Commerce. Lines of hungry South Africans stretch for miles at sites where the government or charities distribute food. Our people need to eat. They need to earn a living, Ramaphosa said when launching a USD 26 billion recovery package, the largest in Africa. It includes increased payments to 16 million people already on welfare and monthly payments to the newly unemployed. The economic downturn is expected to shrink Africa's economies by more than 5 per cent, according to the NKC African Economics research firm. Most punishing are the effects on the millions of Africans who rely upon daily trading to earn money to eat. Ghana, in West Africa, was the first country to lift its restrictions, on April 20, in response to economic pressures. Ten days later, the country registered a spike in confirmed cases of COVID-19. South Africa is still a long way from full economic activity, and further easing will be determined by the spread of the disease and hospitalizations. The country is taking a science-based approach," External link

Salim Abdool Karim said ( about Cyril Ramaphosa ) : "magic, she said. Business was good in January and February, and projections for the rest of 2020 were excellent. Then the coronavirus brought everything to an abrupt halt. Dlamini was confined to her small home under a strict lockdown, with few options for earning money. Millions of other South Africans share in the same misfortune. The country with the continent's most developed economy also has its highest number of confirmed infections more than 21,000, representing 20 per cent of Africa's total. And because the disease may not hit its peak for four more months, leaders expect to spend an especially long time balancing the risks to public health with the economic activity essential to the national welfare. We must save lives and livelihoods, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said this month an address to the nation. So far, South Africa has not seen the explosion of virus infections that emerged in Europe. One possible contributing factor is the country's youthful population, with just 3 per cent of people above the age of 60, say several health experts. Africa's small elderly population may help explain why the disease is spreading relatively slowly across the continent. South Africa is still in the early stages of the pandemic, leading health experts to predict the peak could come as late as August or September. A surge of cases in Cape Town suggests that city might reach its maximum near the end of June. The forecasts portend a lengthy wait to resume normal activity. Other African countries appear to be on a similar trajectory. Forty-three of the continent's 54 nations have imposed containment measures, including lockdowns, bans on public gatherings, school closures and curfews. The lockdown that began March 27 in South Africa is increasing tensions in Soweto, said Dlamini, who closed her tourism business. People are destitute and feeling desperate, Dlamini said. It's heartbreaking and scary. I tell friends that we must get through this hard time, that a vaccine will be found and we can get back to business. ... But right now, it's hard. With 25 bicycles, a vehicle and a trailer sitting idle, Dlamini decided to move into something entirely new. She is now selling meat products from her car to Soweto residents. Ribs, pork trotters, beef bones these are all popular, she said. People are calling me for repeat orders, so business is looking good. Five weeks into the lockdown, South Africa began a gradual easing on May 1, allowing selected mines, factories and businesses to reopen with up to 30 per cent of employees. Restaurants can serve takeaway meals, and people are permitted to walk outside for exercise from 6 am to 9 am. But the economy, already in recession, keeps plummeting. The unemployment rate was at a staggering 29 per cent even before the virus hit, and the jobless rate could rise to 50 per cent, according to the Chamber of Commerce. Lines of hungry South Africans stretch for miles at sites where the government or charities distribute food. Our people need to eat. They need to earn a living, Ramaphosa said when launching a USD 26 billion recovery package, the largest in Africa. It includes increased payments to 16 million people already on welfare and monthly payments to the newly unemployed. The economic downturn is expected to shrink Africa's economies by more than 5 per cent, according to the NKC African Economics research firm. Most punishing are the effects on the millions of Africans who rely upon daily trading to earn money to eat. Ghana, in West Africa, was the first country to lift its restrictions, on April 20, in response to economic pressures. Ten days later, the country registered a spike in confirmed cases of COVID-19. South Africa is still a long way from full economic activity, and further easing will be determined by the spread of the disease and hospitalizations. The country is taking a science-based approach," External link

The more likely scenario, what we have been able to do is stem community transmissions, but once we end the lockdown, as we are going to have to end it at some point, 55 million people will be vulnerable to this virus and that is why we are likely to see the exponential rise in the curve again," External link

Salim Abdool Karim said : "If infected, in the first stage you will not transmit, and then 4 -7 days before symptoms appear you can spread the virus. This virus can spread really fast, a person can infect two to three other people. If 10 00 have it within a few days that number can be 30,000 and then 100 000. The virus grows very rapidly," External link

This time gives us a new opportunity to find innovative ways of testing," External link
