The growing global spread of the Covid-19 novel coronavirus pandemic with an increase in cases in South Africa that is experiencing a period of national lockdown has prompted kykNET (DStv 144) to alter its schedule from Tuesday 7 April with a new weekly, Afrikaans actuality show KN Pandemie that will be anchored by Suzaan Steyn.

Produced by IdeaCandy that does the rest of the KN Verslag current affairs strand for kykNET, KN Pandemie will run for at least the next 13 weeks from Tuesday, 7 April at 21:00 on the channel to bring Afrikaans DStv subscribers news, information and insight about the growing pandemic.

In KN Pandemie presenter Suzaan Steyn will talk live via Skype to experts in various fields.

Virologists and doctors will discuss the medical aspects of Covid-19 and give practical advice on how to stay safe and healthy. Psychologists will discuss the psychological impact of the virus, giving practical ways to look after your mental wellbeing in this challenging time.

Viewers will also be able to ask questions that experts will answer live on the show. KN Pandemie will also check in through Skype with various professionals who are in direct contact with Covid-19, as well as with people locally and internationally, to find out more about their experience during the current situation.

Various organisations are also aiding others to overcome the challenges brought upon by Covid-19 – KN Pandemie will focus on such an organisation on a weekly basis.

The programme will also give practical tips that will simplify and enrich viewers' lives – from easy meals to prepare and arts and crafts for young and old, to physical activities, mental exercises and ways to keep body and mind healthy and calm.

KN Pandemie will give an update on good movies and series to watch and recommend which books to read, while technology used during this time to stay connected with colleagues, friends and family will be explored. Interesting things to do together whilst being apart will be discussed.
