Professor Burtram Fielding – Director of Research and Development at the University of the Western Cape – was a guest on RSG recently. The show sought his expert opinion after the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that it would study new evidence on airborne transmission of the coronavirus. Prof Fielding is a molecular biologist working mainly on coronaviruses since 2003. South Africa accounts for 43% of the continent’s total cases, according to the World Health Organisation.
