As #Day4 dawned on South Africa, the memes and jokes keep pouring in. However, there seems to be a bit more of an honest self-reflecting theme in the posts on social media as the sober reality sets in.
We are currently living through something that very few people have experienced in living memory and we are all trying to find ways to cope.
Briefly.co.za knows that in Mzansi we tend to crack jokes and poke fun at the situation; this is still the case but some people are really struggling with being in lockdown.
In a Shoprite store, customers and employees united in prayer and proved that we are stronger together.
Here are some South Africans' posts on what they are doing on #Day4 of the lockdown, whether it is standing in a queue or finding ways to pass the time.
In other news, Briely.co.za reported on President Cyril Ramaphosa saying that he is grateful to have some good news in the midst of the national lockdown. He added that the South Africans returning healthy from Wuhan are proof that self-isolation works.
In his weekly letter to South Africa, Ramaphosa discussed the success of the mission to bring citizens home from China:
"Yesterday, I was in Polokwane to meet the 114 South Africans who were evacuated from Wuhan in China two weeks ago. They have ended their quarantine and are finally going home to be with their families. They have all tested negative for the virus and are in good health and good spirits."
