South Africa has recorded more than 85 000 Covid-19 related deaths since the virus that causes the disease was detected in the country in March 2020. With death comes grief, and grief is a response to loss, says clinical psychologist Siphelele Nguse.
Nguse says that the Covid-19 pandemic has changed traditional ways of helping people cope with grief.
"The lockdown has prevented people from travelling from one province to another. They were unable to bury their loved ones or pay their respects. It has stopped people from performing certain rituals.
