I dont really understand the details.

Everyone must stay at home but food supply can continue to operate.

How the hell will anyone buy the food supply if they are not allow to leave their homes, this seems idiotically written up.

They can leave for essential services, buying food, banking, social grants etc.

South Africans will only be allowed to leave their homes to buy food and medicine, and to seek medical attention.

Really ? Good fking luck to buy anything in 3 days as the entire nation will invade stores. Doesn't seem safer to get trampled by the insane.

Also 99% of people do not have enough money to just go buy all they need for the next 21 days ahead of time.

This nationwide lockdown is ill thought out and if they were to enforce it then half the population would end up in jail.

I guess the people who will have the most freedom is the homeless.

You're allowed to leave to get food and medicine...

Businesses that deliver food will still operate, Onecart for example.

I swear people can not read or listen

People Breath. Stop.
Deep Breath in.
Deep Breath out

No need to panic.
You are on a forced 21 day holiday in a small town in the freestate.
You have no shopping malls and only your home to entertain yourself.

I have a yard. We will make turns sleeping in a tent outside
