It could cost South Africa between R20-billion and R24-billion to vaccinate around 40 million people against Covid-19, treasury director-general Dondo Mogajane said on Wednesday.

Mogajane warned that this was just an estimate. He declined to say how much treasury would allocate to vaccine procurement in the 2021 budget due next month, adding the “numbers are still soft”.  — Reported by Alexander Winning, (c) 2021 Reuters
