Briefly.co.za readers are largely happy with how government has handled the coronavirus pandemic. Although it hasn't been easy, many readers believe lockdown was our best solution.
Briefly.co.za recently asked readers how they feel about the way South African government has handled the Covid-19 pandemic.
Most readers feel that government has done its best, under the circumstances.
Check out a few reader thoughts below:
"The government is doing it's best to prevent the spread of the virus though, concerning school reopening, they need to reconsider especially winter season. We all need to stay at home. What's hard with this. I mean, some of us have been on lockdown for the past ten years without donations or food parcels. Quarantined and isolated at the same time - and I'm not joking here so these things are possible. Those who use this pandemic as an opportunity to unlawfully gain must be punished by law. Like taking food parcels not deserving or pandemic funds."
Les Evans Rafapa
"A total lockdown was the correct measure given the risks of the COVID-19 epidemic. Because level 4 four was too sudden and its more like testing voltage with your own tongue."
Pearl Gasa mentioned that we can't rely on government for everything.
"I think the government is doing just fine. But, as fellow South Africans, we don't know how to think for ourselves to keep ourselves safe. The government can only do so much, the rest is up to us."
Godfrey Matshete mentioned that government should include traditional or herbal medicine in its quest to find a treatment for the virus.

"Ba zama (They're trying) but government should also be inclusive by allowing traditional doctors to enter into the party of finding the cure (as) most medical always find vaccine, not cure."
