- South Africans were impressed by the creativity of one man
- The man used an old metal drum and converted it into a smart, clean, portable wash basin
- Mzansi applauded his talent and called for his invention to be implemented formally at taxi ranks
The coronavirus has thus far infected 116 people in South Africa and some of the cases were identified as local transmissions.
Now, more than ever, it's important to follow the guidelines on how to stay healthy - including washing one's hands.
One creative man's project might just help do that in areas where it would be hard to wash hands. Twitter user, @Munyai_R_Gundo, shared a before-and-after photo of the man's creation.
Take a look at the post below:
@Munyai_R_Gundo did not reveal who the man is or where he is from. However, South Africans assumed he was from Mzansi and they called for him to be recognised.
Many felt the portable wash basin would be a great addition at taxi ranks where people can't just wash their hands.
Social media user, @moifo14, commented:
"I'm proud of this initiative, hope our government hops on it."
Another tweep, @emily_teffoM, added:
"Wow this would be great for schools, even households, you can place it outside for washing hands when doing yard chores."
Twitter user, @RealKingDennyX, wrote:
"I pray the government is interested in your plan and puts this everywhere."
Meanwhile, earlier, Briefly.co.za reported there has been a spike in confirmed coronavirus cases despite an earlier announcement on Wednesday morning with a much lower number.
In a new statement, the Department of Health noted 116 cases within the country:
"We wish to inform all South Africans that, as of this morning, South Africa now has 116 confirmed cases of Covid-19. This means that there has been an increase of 31 new cases since yesterday's announcement."
