Eskom to prioritise critical services during lockdown

Eskom has announced that it will focus on providing critical services during South Africa’s 21-day coronavirus lockdown.

“Eskom will prioritise what we deem as critical services during the lockdown period due to limited resources,” the power utility stated.

As a result, Eskom will prioritise its response to power failures or any emergencies posing a danger to the public, like low-hanging conductors.

Since the demand has fallen dramatically, get some maintenance done.

“In addition, our employees will be equipped with their regular personal protective equipment (PPE) and necessary preventative tools against the COVID-19 coronavirus,” it noted.
Translation: dirty jeans, dirty shirt, steel tipped safety boots.

“They will also apply the relevant hygiene protocols should they be required to perform duties inside a customer’s home.”
Translation: after taking a massive dump at a customer's home, make sure that hands are not washed afterwards, and don't flush.

They could do a lot more maintenance, but it takes much longer than a 21 day shutdown:
