South Africa’s economy bounced back at an annualised rate of 66.1 percent in July-September, official data showed Tuesday, after plummeting by half in the April-June quarter due to the coronavirus pandemic. The return to growth came ‘largely as a result of the easing of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions,’ statistics agency StatSA said in a statement. It added that gross domestic product in Africa’s second-largest economy had expanded 13.5 percent in non-annualised terms in the third quarter.
