Cutting Edge’s latest episode, which aired on Tuesday, 30 June 2020, saw experts from around the world weighing in on the global COVID-19 pandemic. The team delved into the differences between developing countries and first world countries, and what the World Health Organisation has done to curb the spread of the deadly virus.

The episode looked back at the projections noted by President Cyril Ramaphosa in March 2020, before the lockdown, where he claimed that the country would get much worse before it got better. Experts explained that South Africa is currently experiencing one of the worse stages, as the death toll rapidly increases daily.
