As I write this, President Cyril Ramaphosa has moved the country into an adjusted level-3 lockdown with alcohol sales and onsite consumption thereof banned, a longer curfew and limits on gatherings including at restaurants, gyms, casinos and so forth.

This is coupled with the second surge of coronavirus cases that has fast become a global event and larger than the first, even as authorities have started to roll out vaccines.

This is likely to be the trend for 2021 locally and globally. We’ll move between different lockdown levels, although I think that level 4 or 5 hard lockdowns are unlikely.
