I thought he ended up a bit out of his depth. No idea about the replacement:

18 May is the date that our actual vaccine rollout kicks off!
Was amazed at the finality of this announcement today!
Then in another broadcast it was stated that the total number of doses we will receive is:
J & J: 500 000 trial doses
J & J: 31 million doses
Phizer: 20 million doses

That's excellent news regarding the two vaccines, hopefully that means none of the dodgy Russian and China vaccines.

That is pretty good news, but by then the fourth wave will be on it's way.

One year ago no one could have predicted what was about to come ....
Thinking about that first week in lockdown it was surreal :unsure:

Really? I think a lot of us know how the ANC works and knew this exact issue was coming. Along with the stealing of the money, the complete and utter disaster the healthcare system turned out to be.

'A recipe for sickness and death': Easter 'plan' fear amid Covid-19​

The government is considering allowing outdoor gatherings of up to 5,000 people and indoor gatherings of up to 1,000 to accommodate religious gatherings over the coming Easter weekend.

It is also toying with the idea of restricting or barring alcohol sales over Easter and banning interprovincial travel to limit the movement of people between provinces, according to two senior sources privy to discussions that took place in the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) this week.
