People who are over 60 years of age that get infected with the coronavirus are at a much higher risk of dying than the general population. The risk gets worse for those who are over 70 years of age. Therefore, each South African needs to stay at home and adopt this slogan:
“I will obey the lockdown protocol probably not for me but for the sake of my parents and grandparents.”
Do it for them, do it for our country, stay at home, be safe and obey the lockdown regulations.
– Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee On Health, Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo, in a media statement released this weekend
