During the Local Municipal elections, the political parties where filling up stadiums campaigning to get majority of people to vote for their political party to win and govern, and during that time the Covid-19 cases where at their lowest level even though there were huge gatherings with people not abiding by the the Covid-19 rules and regulations, and not sticking to the number of people required at a gathering. Once the elections are done and dusted there was a sudden surge in Covid-19 cases on South Africa.
It is said that the 4th wave of COVID-19 has hit South Africa and there has been a lot of travel ban instated to Southern African Countries and South Africa is one of the countries that has been placed in red hot list. The COVID-19 cases are hitting over 2000 daily cases per day in South Africa, the South Africa corona virus council was scheduled to meet on Sunday the 28th Of November 2021, however due to the urgency needed to curb the spread of the virus the council will meet earlier than the scheduled date, they will meet on Saturday 27th Of November 2021.
The Health Minister Joe Phaahla stated that there is a possibility to close of Inter-provincial traveling to curb the spread of the virus. “There is a possibility of an inter-traveling ban this festive season as a result of the rising number of Covid-19 cases” says the health minister. He further stated that their experts have indicated that the people’s movement is the one that spreads the virus faster.
South Africans say that they will not abide by the rules since the government was doing as they please during the local municipal elections, one tweep said,”No way we are going to adhere to a local ban, yes, we are vaccinated and take all necessary non pharmaceutical precautions”. Alcohol and restaurants are pleading with the government when they enforce restrictions since they have been suffering from the first hard lockdown and now they are starting to recuperate all their losses, now is the time for businesses to make more money with tourism going to be at its peak.
