- According to the man, the virus only targets people "with budget"
One man took a controversial, but comical view of the coronavirus and the potential impact in South Africa.
Based on his video, it seems he can't understand what all the fuss is about and urged the people of Mzansi to chill.
Twitter user Sentletse (@Sentletse) shared the tweet and Briefly.co.za gathered it got South Africans laughing out loud. The caption read:
"I am now convinced that us natives need to calm down."
Since being shared on Monday evening, the short clip has attracted nearly 5 000 likes and countless funny reactions.
In the video, he explains that the virus is drawn to people "with budget" and not the impoverished.
He explains in detail that those who eat affordable food items, such as liver spread, Rama margarine and baked beans, are not at risk as the virus seeks wealthy hosts.

"Rama! Rama! It moves on, it doesn't stay."

KondiFlag of South Africa (@sharonnembaleni) added,
"This guy’s preaching is exactly what I needed. I’m going crazy obsessing ka this Coronavirus. Not a day goes by without me tagging Dr Mkhize."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that scientists were willing to offer R73 000 for volunteers to be infected with the virus.
The plan is for the participants to be injected with a weaker strain to enable scientists to work on a cure.
