A further 434 Covid-19 related deaths over the past 24 hours have pushed South Africa’s death toll to 30-thousand-and-11. Meanwhile, the South African Federation of Trade Unions has appealed for a basic income grant to fight poverty, inequality, and unemployment in the country with General-Secretary Zwelinzima Vavi saying there can be no better time for introducing such grant as people are dying not just of the coronavirus but also of poverty.
