This special edition of EPIC places particular emphasis on the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic is having on the Cape Town economy. To do this, the issue presents data and information that extends beyond the first quarter focus that is usually offered by the first edition of the year. The content also draws on the latest available data for the April and May lockdown months. Given that economic output and employment data are not yet available for the second quarter, the publication relies on the latest impact modelling undertaken by the City to provide commentary regarding the overall Covid-19 impact on the local economy.
