JSE slips amid Covid-19 rising cases threat

The JSE was weaker on Friday, along with its global peers as rising numbers in Covid-19 cases in some parts of the world offset recent optimism around a vaccine.

The positive news for vaccines comes amid a worrying rise in Covid-19 across the US. The world’s largest economy has now confirmed more than 10.5-million cases. Some areas, including New York City and San Francisco, have announced new economic restrictions in an attempt to slow the spread.
