Health conversations: The implications of administrating ivermectin to Covid-19 patients

Being a new virus, Covid-19 has evoked a great deal of uncertainty around which treatments will be beneficial to patients. Medical practitioners also worry about the medicolegal implications of clinical decisions they take in the face of rapidly evolving clinical knowledge and shifting regulations.
One of the drugs causing a dilemma for practitioners is ivermectin – the anti-parasitic drug that has been punted in the media for its abilities to suppress coronavirus infections and its complications.

Social conversations: Avoiding quarantine by visiting another country? South Africans should know the risks

Travellers who want to avoid harsh quarantine requirements imposed by some countries are now planning stopovers in destinations with low Covid-19 restrictions.

Educational conversations: The right to education: An insider's perspective over the past 25 years

The last year has made the rights enshrined in South Africa's Bill of Rights more relevant than ever before. Prior to Covid-19, many of us simply took the right to freedom of movement for granted, as well as the right to freedom of trade, to healthcare and to education.

The one-year anniversary of the pandemic this past month, together with Human Rights Day, has forced me to think of the ways in which education has evolved from a human rights perspective over the course of my career. Here’s what I have learnt in the past 25 years.
Guest on the line: Jackie Carroll, the MD of Optimi Workplace, is the co-founder of Media Works, South Africa's leading provider of adult education and training for 25 years.

Legal conversations: Employee attacked at work during protest action may claim damages from her employer

A recent Supreme Court of Appeal judgment has provided new guidance on COIDA cover and when employers may be exposed to direct claims for damages by employees.

Ordinarily, employees injured on duty would be able to lodge a claim with the Compensation Fund under the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act 13 of 1993 (COIDA). However, given the unique circumstances in this matter, the SCA held that COIDA did not apply and that instead the employee could claim damages from the employer directly.
