See below and attached a communique from SASCOC for your information and attention.
Yesterday evening, President Cyril Ramaphosa made pronouncements as follows:
"The National Coronavirus Command Council has decided to enforce a nation-wide lockdown for 21 days with effect from midnight on Thursday 26 March. This is a decisive measure to save millions of South Africans from infection and save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people."
Attached is the speech from President Ramaphosa in this regard for your further reading.
Key to President’s pronouncements was the plea for us as South Africans to continue to observe the protocols shared to date which can help us to mitigate the spread of the corona-virus.
Today, we share with you 2 of combat tactics namely:
Avoidance of alcohol (see attached infographic)
