JOHANNESBURG - The country’s current COVID-19 regulations and policy objectives are unclear and not consistent, that’s according to UKZN’s Research and Innovation Vice-Chancellor Professor Mosa Moshabela.

Moshabela says the government needs to clarify whether the regulations are there to prevent the spread of the virus or are for protecting people from severe illness, hospitalisation, and death.
