- Date of publication: 25 July 2022
On 30 June 2022, the Minister in the Presidency, Mr Mondli Gungubele, officially launched the first edition of the South Africa COVID-19 Country Report. Written by a group of over 80 experts between 2020 and 2021, the report reflects on the measures taken by the South African Government to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. GCRO researchers contributed to two chapters in the report; Chapter 5.3 Impact on Vulnerable Groups (Gillian Maree) and Chapter 5.4 Gender Equity (Alex Parker and Gillian Maree). A separate report on the Governance of the COVID-19 pandemic in Gauteng Province was written by Rob Moore (former GCRO Executive Director) and Graeme Gotz (Director of Research Strategy) and a summary of this is included in the Country Report.
A second edition Country Report is underway and will deal with government interventions to the pandemic during 2021 and 2022 and is expected to be published in early 2023. The report is available for download from the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation: https://www.gtac.gov.za/resource/south-africa-covid-19-country-report-first-edition-june-2021/
