Load-shedding in South Africa’s coronavirus lockdown – What you need to know

South Africa may be facing a 21-day lockdown to combat the coronavirus, but that does not mean citizens are safe from load-shedding.

While it has been over a week since Eskom last implemented load-shedding, it is continually reminding South Africans that there is a risk of rolling blackouts due to its lack of generational capacity.

President Cyril Ramaphosa did assure South Africans that maintenance workers at Eskom would be allowed to keep working along with workers in other essential industries.

Hope they can shut down some plants now and do some proper maintenance.
There's masses of no-work-no-pay blue collars sitting at home right now who will be eager to help for a few bucks.

One can hope that this period takes the pressure off in some ways and lets the guys do proper maintenance on the ones that have unexpectedly tripped.
