South Africa seems to be the epic center of Corona Virus in the African continent. According to World Health Organization, South Africa has thus far recorded 1.492.909 cases of Corona where as the number of cases of people who recovered from Corona is at 1.391.155. There is a big number of people who have been recorded to have died of Corona and this number is at 48.094.

Many people in the whole world and Africa keep on asking themselves, why South Africa. There are many speculations about this matter, but as Eine Welt Forum Freiburg, FAIRburg e.V. and One World Network, we have decided to organize an online event that seeks to attempt to elaborate on why South Africa has many cases. There is a huge visible impact that has been caused by the presence of Covid 19 in South Africa. The impact is felt in many different spheres of life in South Africa. South Africa was able to buy Vaccine, and it was produced in India. In the discussion, we will also deliberate on how the procument of such a vaccine went. There is a rumor that the vaccine which was bought from India is not effective and about to expire soon. We shall learn more about this from our guest speaker.

We would like to cordially invite you to join us on the 24.02.2021. To talk about this topic largely and factually, we have decided to invite Masindi Mudau from South Africa and Victor Baatweng from Botswana to accompany us in this topic.
Masindi Madau is a South African young lady who is making herself a name in the journalism industry. Victor Baatweng is a financial journalist with a consistent focus on public affairs, social entrepreneurship and the economy at large.
