The government together with the citizens can now afford a smile amidst the on-going pandemic as the number and rate of infection is way too low than that which had been anticipated by the brains and decision-makers of the country.
The Health Minister, Zweli Mkhize, during his announcement, urged the public to be calm as he together with his team has remained optimistic that the current rate of infection may not shoot to that which was thought during the beginning of the outbreak.
Dr Mhkize has warned SA citizens of the incoming winter. The public has been told the coming climate change may cause alterations in the current running figures of infection. The people should try and follow the set regulations strictly as the lockdown is still in effect.
The lockdown activity aims to curb and limit movement and spread of the virus within the country. Let us all try our level best to prevent any infections at a personal level as the government handles the rest.
