Amid rumours the Namibian government will today reveal a list of countries from which international travellers will be banned, similar to the one issued by South Africa, the Western Cape government has called for the South African list to be scrapped as the province’s Finance MEC David Maynier says it is killing international tourism. News24 reports that while the South African government had been praised for its handling of the pandemic as the first surge hit, the lockdown has caused significant economic hardship, leaving many people poor and hungry. The wine industry alone lost an estimated R300 million per week under Alert Level 5 restrictions, with 350 wine producers going out of business and highly-frequented tourist spots closed, while the tourism and hospitality industry in general was particularly badly hit.
