News24 Subscribers are invited to an exclusive editors' meeting with the journalists reporting on South Africa's Covid-19 response.

Does South Africa have the financial resources to procure the Covid-19 vaccines? Why isn't it compulsory to take the vaccine? Why are spokespeople evasive and seemingly unwilling to answer burning questions promptly? Can we trust the government's rollout timeline?

These were some of the topics discussed during the second instalment of the Editors' Table, where News24 subscribers get exclusive insights about what is going on behind the scenes as the government prepares for the vaccine rollout.

Assistant editor for in-depth news Pieter du Toit - along with News24's dedicated Covid-19 reporting team made up of Kyle Cowan, Azarrah Karrim, and Tebogo Monama - discuss some of the hot-button topics around the government's vaccine rollout plan.
