Perhaps a hard lockdown at the start of next year? The youth not taking covid-19 seriously, no one bothered with masks at a lot of restaurants/pubs in Cape Town .

Great idea, while we're at it let's just kill the remaining job market and become Zim truely.
It's also a little hard to eat and drink with Masks and since restaurants and pubs have been opened no one has worn masks in them.

Definitely think they are going to do something, question is just how far they'll go and when they announce it.

Beaches will not be closed for now – that is the decision we (as a province) have taken. If it comes to push, we might be forced to close (the beaches) for swimming, but allow people to be in and around the beach for leisure.”
Zikalala explained that this eventuality could arise as people are forced to remove their masks for swimming, but not for other activities.

Brilliant logic as always!!

Section 12(2) of the Constitution for instance provides that: ‘everyone has the right to bodily and psychological integrity, which includes the right to security in and control over their body.’

Patient autonomy is not, however, absolute, as the Constitution permits limitation of rights in terms of a law of general application and only to the extent that it is reasonable and justifiable in an open democratic society based on human dignity, equality and freedom, the firm said.
Interesting legal point of view of compulsory vaccinations in the work place

984/1050. 93 percent positivity rate thus far. I know covid-19 spreads like wildfire but this is still incredible.
lol what?

Crowds pretty much standing on each other will of course lead to a high percentage

Not if you consider all the "close contact" that goes on the (if you known what I mean...)

You're not required to wear them when eating or drinking.

The stupidity level of that premier is mindboggling indeed.

Our neighbour’s son tested positive this week. Grade 11 so don’t know if he would’ve gone to a rage.

This is the first person I know, even vaguely, who’s tested positive.

Hearing about cases more often locally now as well as police station was closed down during the week because someone got COVID there.

Don't blame the youth. Blame the idiotic parents who allow this to happen. It is like willingly sending your kids to the front line of a war. What parent in their right mind lets it happen? Blithering fools!

Really? Firstly they were 18+years old but really kids, secondly it's not like sending them to the frontline of a war.
