Covid-19 Pandemic: Fundamental Impact
 
In South Africa, treating Covid-19 is costing around R150,000 per person – before indirect expenses (1). Hospital admissions alone cost R85 000 on average (2).
 
However, the cost of shut-down normally runs into much more than millions, e.g.:
 

Large Enterprises: Implats closes Marula mine because 19 employees test + for Covid-19 (3). This costs R3,3 Mil profit daily (4), excluding the impact on jobs and supply chain!

SMME’s: It will unfortunately mean closure for most (5).

Systemic Poverty: In 2020 alone, it is pushing 40-60 million people into extreme poverty – half of those are in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) (6).

SSA Output Losses: World Bank estimations are between $37 Bil (R651 Bil) and $79 Bil (R1,4 Tril) for 2020 alone (7).

Is there a solution?  Yes! Integrated Governance, Risk & Compliance Eco-system Management.  This is a mix of human processes and directed technology management.
 
Chase is that Technology Platform that enables the human processes to succeed!
