that ALL clubs must close, schools are closed early. People advised to stay at home where possible. I am a bit peed off as my Dog Training Club was my only social outlet and we work outdoors on a field. |
The virus hasn't hit here really hard yet but it will be worse than anywhere when it does. All of the people coming in to work every day from the townships have to travel on Publix Taxis (they are mini busses really) They are supposed to seat 15 but often have 25 all crowded in together, no form of sanitation wipes on them. Also these people in the townships live in terrible conditions, often a whole family per room in a house and all sharing the one bathroom, the landlords provide no cleaning products. Often the daily fare to and from work costs half the days pay. Our Public hospitals are so bad it's frightening, often 2 to a bed and mattresses or just blankets on the floor. Our one "isolation" hospital in Cape Town claims it is "ready as it has 8 isolation beds available".
