A message from Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize on South Africa’s latest efforts to flatten the curve and contain the spread of Covid-19. “Each one of us must make this a personal fight to save our nation. Stay calm, focused and courageous. Stay at home. Practice hygiene and distancing. Together, we will overcome. “
JOHANNESBURG - Health Minister Zweli Mkhize reminded the nation to comply with the national lockdown regulations.
In a public service address, Mkhize explained what people can expect from the next phase of interventions.
The minister said the internal transmission of the virus in the country is the next battle to be faced, and will be difficult to navigate as the accurate figures of infection might be masked by the lockdown.
“Each one of us must make this a personal fight to save our nation," he said.
"Stay calm, focused and courageous. Stay at home. Practice hygiene and distancing," he said.
"Together, we will overcome. “
