A few years ago, the 21st century was often seen as the century of light. In fact, photonics has conquered our daily life: It is the technology that is in the core of a fast internet, and it enables such popular products as smartphones, to name but a few examples. Steve Anderson, Director, Industry Development at SPIE, presented a view of photonics markets that took a wider perspective of photonics as an enabling technology for large parts of our economy. In his systematics, he focuses on the photonics value chain, distinguishing four levels:

  • Level 1: Components (e.g., imaging chips, lamps, and lenses)
  • Level 2: Photonic products (e.g., imaging subassemblies, displays, and LED lamps)
  • Level 3: Enabled products (e.g., smartphones and autonomous vehicles)
  • Level 4: Enabled services (e.g., cloud computing, e-commerce, and video streaming)

It is obvious that economic figures derived from these four levels differ severely from the figures for

Public health emergencies place immense power in the hands of executive leadership. This can pose a risk of creeping authoritarianism. Professor Narnia Bohler-Muller and Dr Benjamin Roberts explore the lessons that can be drawn from the findings of the University of Johannesburg and the Human Sciences Research Council’s online survey on the public’s views on lockdown regulations. 

In March 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic led President Cyril Ramaphosa to announce a state of national disaster in terms of the Disaster Management Act. Strict lockdown regulations instituted under this legislation had a clear bearing on human rights.

While the High Court declared some of the Level 4 and 3 regulations irrational and thus unconstitutional in mid-2020, our survey research demonstrates that ordinary people in South Africa voice unwavering support for the select limitation of their rights as a means of preventing the spread of the virus.

We believe that this partly reflects

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic likely set back growth in air passenger numbers by two to three years.

  • The damage of the Covid-19 crisis will be felt for years to come, forecasts an international aviation body.
  • That said, its research indicates that people have retained their need and desire to travel.
  • To ensure that aviation can sustainably deliver its social and economic benefits, though, governments must step up support for more efficient operations.

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic and related lockdowns and travel bans have likely set back growth in air passenger numbers by two to three years, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

The airline body represents about 290 airlines comprising 82% of global air traffic. 

“The damage of the Covid-19 crisis will be felt for years to come, but all indications are that people have retained their need and desire to travel,” IATA

  • There are international misperceptions about the way SA is handling the coronavirus pandemic, warns Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane.
  • It is important to clear up these misunderstandings, she said during a briefing about a recovery plan for SA’s important tourism sector.
  • The recovery plan follows from input by the public and private sectors.

There is a growing misunderstanding about how South Africa is managing the coronavirus pandemic – and the perception that there is a “new variant” of Covid-19 in SA has not helped, according to Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane.

“The association of a Covid-19 variant with SA has had a negative impact on the country’s brand and the country has been placed on a travel alert by many countries,” she said during a briefing on Thursday about the Tourism Sector Recovery Plan, which Cabinet has approved. 

“We had various engagements with targeted source markets and embassies. What we find is

The Centre wants the judiciary to keep its hands off the management of the COVID-19 crisis and its “waves/surges”.

The latest 218-page affidavit filed by the Centre in the Supreme Court on May 9 informs the judiciary in no uncertain terms that “though it [Centre] is duty-bound to fully assist this Honourable Court… the policy, strategy and steps taken by the Executive, based on expert medical and scientific advice, have to be appreciated in the context of the medical crisis”. It said decisions were taken after “detailed deliberations at the highest Executive level”. Hence, no “interference” is called for in judicial proceedings. In other words, the Centre has asked the courts — Supreme Court and the High Courts — to “leave it open” for the government to discharge its functions in “larger interests”.

However, an examination of the Supreme Court orders from April 30 to May 6 show that the

China to gift 1 million Covid-19 vaccine doses to Nepal

China will provide 1 million doses of a Covid-19 vaccine to Nepal, its ambassador said on Wednesday, as authorities in the Himalayan country scramble to secure shots amid a surge in infections that has overwhelmed its rickety health system.

The announcement was made during a telephone conversation between Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Nepali counterpart Bidya Devi Bhandari on Wednesday, China’s ambassador Hou Yanqi said in a Twitter post.

In March, China provided 800 000 doses of the Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine to Nepal, which also received a million shots of the AstraZeneca vaccine as gift from India. Nepal began its vaccination drive in January but the campaign has been suspended because of the lack of vaccines after New Delhi said it was unable to provide additional shots due to its domestic needs.

It is only three months into 2020, but businesses across different sectors in the country have been hit hard as the COVID-19 pandemic wreaks havoc on economic activities nationwide. 

The highly infectious pneumonia-like disease has spared only a few businesses, mostly offering healthcare products and services, while many others, from airlines and hotels to retail and food and beverage industries, have taken a hard hit. 

The government officially announced the first two confirmed COVID-19 cases at the beginning of March. Several sectors felt the blow in the form of major disruptions in cash flow and business operations as the outbreak spread like wildfire, forcing some employees to work from home, while others became victims of unemployment. 

The Jakarta Post has followed recent developments closely and compiled the adverse impacts of COVID-19

President Cyril Ramaphosa.

  • President Cyril Ramaphosa believes Africa needs to ensure its ability to produce vaccines.
  • He was speaking in a conference on vaccine production.
  • African countries have been suffering a slow pace of vaccine rollouts.

Africa needs the skills and capacity to manufacture its own vaccines, President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Monday, as the continent lags other global regions in inoculating against Covid-19.

With only around 2% of the world’s total number of shots so far administered, “… Africa needs to harness its own continental capabilities and identify opportunities for collaboration across… countries,” Ramaphosa told a conference on vaccine production organised by the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC).

He said other countries outside the continent, “… could offer technological expertise, financing and investment”, suggesting India and Brazil could help with guidance on how they have developed their own generic pharmaceutical industries.

The agreement with Pfizer, which is yet to be finalized in an official contract, would be the world’s biggest single deal for a Covid-19 vaccine to date. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced the landmark purchase on Friday during a visit to a Pfizer manufacturing plant in Puurs, Belgium, saying the vaccines would be delivered through to 2023.

The deal was announced as pressure mounts on developed nations to stop purchasing more doses than their populations need to ensure there are enough for the rest of the world.

An account of the negotiations published Wednesday by the New York Times, based on interviews with von der Leyen, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla and other experts and officials, painted a picture of personal diplomacy between the Pfizer and EU chiefs. It related how the pair exchanged regular text messages and calls over months until it became clear Pfizer could supply
