The beginning of June will see South Africa entering level 3 to ease the lockdown regulations which put economic activity to an abrupt halt since March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is important to take personal responsibility to stay safe and ensure that our actions do not compromise the wellbeing of others.
Ekurhuleni, Johannesburg and Tshwane form part of the country’s corona virus hotspots. The reality is that the invisible enemy is wreaking havoc and leaving many global citizens hungry, while paralysing and leading to many businesses to shut down. Gauteng News calls on its community and partners to use the 2020 Africa Day to reflect on how best each one of us can alleviate the devastating impact of the Covid-19 virus.
It cannot be easy for the Corona Virus Command Council to make decisions that require balancing people’s health while keeping the economy working. It is therefore important to acknowledge the limitations government has in monitoring and ensuring our wellbeing. It is key to use the guidelines and regulations provided to avoid contracting the virus.
We will share aspects of level 3 guidelines and their implications throughout this week to keep you informed. We will also share Covid-19 statistics as complied by the National Department of Health.
