OPINION : A family meeting and a temporary ban on provincial travel loading?

There is a greater possibility that South Africa may have a family meeting after the President of South Africa Mr Cyril Ramaphosa meets with the National Coronavirus Command Council on Sunday .

It has been a norm that when the President meets with the National Coronavirus Command Council, he informs the country what will have been discussed.

Another measure that is likely to be proposed is the temporary ban on provincial travel . Scientists do not know much about the new Covid-19 variant yet, and they would not want people to keep moving between provinces increasing the possibility of its spread. While scientists are working hard to find the characteristics of the new variant, the council would surely want to contain further spread of the variant.

Another possible measure that may be implemented by the council is the restriction of large gatherings. Since the variant has been detected at an early stage , the council would not want to put the lives of people in danger by exposing them to possible superspreaders.

The National Coronavirus Command Council has a huge responsibility of ensuring that measures are put in place to contain the spread of Covid-19.

Movements between provinces and metros have to be restricted in order to help contain the variant. Action has to be taken as soon as possible because the characteristics of this Covid-19 variant are unknown.

It is high time the members of the public are made to adhere to Covid-19 regulations such as wearing masks and social distancing.

Police need to be deployed around shopping centers, communities and all over South Africa to serve the purpose of reminding people about the importance of adhering to these protocols.

The National Coronavirus Command Council needs to find ways of ensuring that spread of Covid-19 is restricted, even if it means imposing measures that may be uncomfortable.
