The honourable South African President Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa was at it again last night.
12 July 2020, President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the state on South Africa’s ongoing measures to manage the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) through the implementation of a risk-adjusted strategy.
With the aim to contain the escalating number of coronavirus cases and deaths within the country, Ramaphosa announced the ban on the sale and distribution of alcohol, in addition because the new curfew which entails everyone must be indoors between 9:00pm and 4:00am (exceptions for those who must be at work during these times).
We fully agree that the distribution and sale of alcohol has an impact on the growth numbers of COVID-19 in South Africa because there are still more people who don’t believe that the Virus is real and it is the cause of many death in our beloved country.
Other regulations include:
• Taxis undertaking long trips must adhere to 70% occupancy.
• Taxis undertaking short trips are often at full capacity (with regulations on sanitization, ventilation, and hygiene).
• The wearing of masks are enforced.
Fellow brothers and sisters, let’s adhere and obey to the rules so that we can save our beautiful country.
