South Africa reported its first COVID-19 case in early March with China reporting their first case almost four month ago. Since then much of the world has gone into extended lockdown.

The stats for infections and deaths are staggering and continue to rise. This is truly a global pandemic and while not making light of the deaths, the other side of the story is the economic impact.

The US has shed over 20million jobs in four weeks and global GDP is collapsing and South Africa is not being spared as the lockdown has been extended to run for five weeks.

In this live webcast Simon Brown will delve into the early local and global economic data we’re seeing so far during this crisis. He’ll try to figure out what the actual trends are so far and how much worse they’ll get in the months ahead and the ultimately longer term impact.
