South Africans are braced for the nationwide lockdown, which is set to commence from Thursday at midnight.
It will undoubtedly have an effect on everyone and many small businesses will face significant pressures.
In light of this, one of Johannesburg's premier sandwich providers took to social media to share an inspirational message.
Twitter user Itumeleng (@sandwich_kiing) explained how the lockdown would affect his business.
Effectively, the situation will mean zero income for the period. However, Itumeleng explained that he still has to take care of his employees.
Despite the huge challenge, he called on others to remain positive and emerge stronger once the crisis has been overcome.
Briefly.co.za noted the huge response and tweeps admired the entrepreneur's tenacity and kind nature.

"Salute to you buddy. You are doing your bit and believe me it's a lot. We are all taking a hit left right centre but it is what it is.. Lets live to eat another one of your nton nton..(still owe a visit). We have to come out the other side breathing. To build again. Be safe."
