Not sure if this has been said already but Cyril said a few days ago that there will be no second hard lockdown.... for what it's worth.

Careful, we aren't allowed to talk about it anymore. It upsets people terribly.

Interesting article on Sky News this morning about South Africa. Minus the stupid stock photos of dirty roads and homeless people they seem to love using to portray us.

The article claims (by some doctors) that Level 5-3 Lockdowns actually inadvertently caused a faster spread of the virus in the townships, which has led to some kind of herd immunity, at least for certain "clusters". They are using that to explain the relatively low numbers and deaths compared to other countries.

The article also claims antibody tests returning negative should not be viewed as a bad thing because they are not reflecting T-cell immunity which is not tested for and can provide 2-3 years protection as tested against SARS and a few others.

Moral of the story for me was, wear a mask, sanitize and stop talking about lockdowns - they're stupid.

300+ posts because MyBB used a quote from the KZN premier to create a headline about hard lockdown.

What is happening with this site? Has Adriaan Basson bought shares on MyBB?

Italians are not taking the second lock down well. Seems they are going all South African and rioting & looting.

What is interesting is that no one does racial makeups of these protests though, we have no way of knowing how many of them are done by migrants.

Ramaphosa: He will address the media soon
Media: there are rumours that Cyril has invested 3 billion $ in chinese lab that manufactured coronavirus.
mybb: ramadingdong, tingtong, squirrel, anc, bee, genocide, zim 2.0

p.s. To be fair to mods, they are just reporting on what media reports. /shrugs
Two separate issues. Where else did you see the media conflating the two?

Nah always been like that, I have been living in an underground bunker since 2013 thanks to MyBB.
