Covid-19: Experts call for Level 5 restrictions as infections continue to rise

Twitter user, @AboshNayo had this stinging message for the South African government:

"I honestly don’t care a damn about not being able to buy alcohol, I’m honestly just tired of these lockdowns that result in nothing but job losses and poverty for our people. The government doesn’t seem to have a plan and nothing will change in this 14-day period. Nothing!!"

The angered young woman also went on to add that the looting of Covid-19 funds by government officials definitely contributed to the current desperation SA is faced with. She believes at least 70% of the youth are unemployed as a result of these hefty lockdown restrictions.

"Job losses, no vaccines, no accountability from the government, just looting Covid funds and corruption," she later adds.

Some social media users agreed with the young woman's statement, adding that the prioritised vaccination of old people is not helping Mzansi's economy get back on its feet.
