Once again South Africans are inundated with bad news from Dlamini Zuma.

After being enlarged once more this week, Dlamini-Zuma has stated that the ostensibly "everlasting" State of Disaster will not be ending anytime soon.

Whatever you achieved at week's end, it's unlikely that you accomplished anything that would have an impact on South Africa's 60 million citizens. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is the most notable exception to this general rule, following the COGTA Minister's authoritative declaration that the public State of Disaster would be increased once more.

The crisis powers, which allow the government to maintain lockdown guidelines, are now in their 21st month, and the parameters will either be terminated or reinstalled on Wednesday, December 15th. Dlamini-Zuma made the declaration in the most current Government Gazette, with very little evidence.

In any case, this cycle has caused gatvol in a number of South Africans. Coronavirus cases are at their lowest levels in what seems like an eternity. Only a few new diseases, hospitalizations, and deaths have been reported, and some relaxed eyewitnesses believe there has never been a better time to repeal the State of Disaster regulations.

These instructions are potentially harmful because they are exempt from parliamentary scrutiny and do not meet the criteria for authority approval. Following the announcement of the increase, a number of web-based media users expressed their displeasure.

The government has been clear in its reasoning for maintaining the State of Disaster: they need a higher immunization take-up before the restrictions are lifted for acceptable, and members of the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) are concerned that a FOURTH WAVE of diseases could emerge during the holiday season.

Should more cases emerge, those in charge would try to revert to their crisis instincts and reintroduce stricter levels of lockdown to prevent COVID-19 flare-ups. With only 33% of the population fully immunized, the real hits may struggle to prevent the disease from resurfacing in South Africa.
