Citizens in Johannesburg township Alexandra are on the receiving end of fury and insults from the rest of South Africa.

These folks are still out shopping and carrying on with their daily routines despite the national lockdown of 21 days.

The point of the lockdown is to help the country with the worrying spread of the coronavirus but it looks like not everyone is taking it as seriously.

Naturally, the people who are doing their most to self-isolate and curb the spread of Covid-19 were not impressed.

To them, it looks like their fellow South Africans are being irresponsible, careless and selfish.

Briefly.co.za gathered what a few of them had to say:

@Imaginegideon

"This is crazy indeed. Where were they all these while? South Africans will never cease to amaze me. They'll be the first ones to complain when this monster Chinese virus starts ravaging the country, but they can't observe the simplest instruction. #CrazyPeople"

@Ndondo70369124

"Lockdown won't happen in any township in Mzansi, it will an impossibility."

@Hoping4Forever

"That doesn't look like social distancing to me!"

@Maenjoo

"At least there should be social distancing. Can somebody go & tell them. They infect each other through coughing & sneezing. Help!"
