Our special issue out in stores in June is a must-have edition produced entirely remotely in keeping with the times, and on the game-changing coronavirus that has redefined our lives and livelihoods. We explore what African business, big and small, is thinking now to adapt to the new normal. Big names from corporate Africa convene on our pages to explore how to urgently pandemic-proof companies with new ideas, innovations and emotions, to merely stay alive fighting a marauding virus. The coronavirus has rebooted every aspect of life as we know it. Across Africa, what are the home-grown ideas and small-scale technological solutions coming to the fore to help combat it? We delve into the impact of the virus on the sports industry, on the events sector and on advertising and marketing. We also talk about the new home headquarters and how Chinese billionaire Eric Yuan is helping millions of people survive social distancing by giving away his videoconferencing tool, Zoom, for free. And then there are the big names in sport, such as Gary Player and Wayde van Niekerk, speaking about their life in lockdown and their all-new fitness regimen. The start of the mask economy is another feature alongside the new ‘covid couture’. All of this is in our new issue, which also includes sections that focus on Madagascar and South Africa’s executive health forecast. This is a historic edition you would want to keep for posterity.
