Dire Covid-19 warning — South Africa heading for hard lockdown over December

Permitting large gatherings under the adjusted level 1 lockdown could result in the fourth wave of Covid-19 cases hitting South Africa earlier than anticipated, and the country being placed under hard lockdown during the December holidays.

This dire warning comes from several health and governance experts who recently spoke to The Sunday Times regarding the government's decision to allow for significantly larger gatherings than previously permitted under lockdown regulations.

Government expects businesses to figure out how to operate with lockdowns in place, but these hypocrites simply change the rules when the shoe is on the other foot. Level one was introduced to make it easier for them to campaign and for no other reason.

You have to vaccinate 1400 people to save one life?

I've never been involved in an MVA where a seat belt would have saved me or an airbag deployed or even a crumble zone did its trick. I am sure most people here are in the same situation.

Now imagine all the money wasted on these features, and time lost buckling up, and all the servicing and the recalls of faulty airbags, how many starving and unemployed people could we save if we instead invested that money to create jobs for them.

Waits for the hypocrites on the right to suddenly say they are for lockdown.. when just the e other day they wanted it all gone. Why Sa is going to ****..being a hypocrite has become like breathing for most.

Businesses have been calling for level one, or removal of all restrictions. Surely they should be able take advantage of the relaxation, even if govt made the announcement for it's own selfish reasons.

No thanks. With a vaccination programme in place, there is no appetite for a hard lockdown except amongst the medical establishment and control freaks in the ANC...which is unfortunately the ones who make decisions.

Just trying to figure out how the ANC wants to market SA as a tourist destination while threatening lockdown every few months.

You ppl do get the government has literally nothing to do with the lockdowns right ? Sure they state when they happen and what level we are, but they are literally follow the data. When we spike up into a new wave, we lockdown.

The government doesn't cause said spike, the countries populus does.
