Health Minister Mkhize reiterated that five people had died.
According to Minister Mkhize, a 48-year-old woman in the Western Cape, an 85-year-old man in the Free State, a man from Gauteng who traveled to the Western Cape, two in KwaZulu-Natal, a 46-year-old man and 76-year-old woman.
According to Mkhize, it is still disputed that the virus can spread in the air. He says masks work and are prescribed.
Masks is best way of preventing spread of infection. If you have a cough use a mask says Minister Mkhize.
Mkhize says he can’t say how long the state of restriction will last.
After that, everything will not return to normal immediately.
Life wont be back to normal after the lockdown. Lockdown worked in China and they are now no 4 raging ahead with prevention . South Korea also dropped to no 13 in the world.— Dr Zweli Mkhize (@DrZweliMkhize) March 31, 2020
South Africa is currently looking at other countries as examples, including China that could control the outbreak.
The other country that handles the outbreak is South Korea. Whatever happens after the 21 days, South Africans’ behavior will have to change.
During today’s talk, the Health Minister had to address false information that had been spreading around that black people cannot get the virus leaving only whites to be affected. The Minister expressed strongly that this is false information/fake news and should not be listened to.
