Talk Africa: Holidays in a pandemic

The holidays are approaching, and like most things this year, it will be far from normal due to Covid-19. Families everywhere are struggling to make plans while conscious of the pandemic, forcing some to cancel their traditions or rethink their plans.

For millions of families across Africa the festive season is always something to look forward to. It’s a time of reunion that ushers in a spirit of togetherness and sharing. Retail chains as well as the travel & tourism industry also experience booming business. But all that has changed in 2020.

This week on Talk Africa we look into how people are coping with the Covid-19 containment measures; how these measures will impact the upcoming holiday gatherings,  also how they will redefine the future of travel.
