As more and more people, including celebrities, test positive for Covid-19, Lasizwe Dambuza has taken to social media to express that Mzansi needs to go back to the strict Level 5 lockdown.
The reality TV star could not believe the high number of people who have contracted the virus when he asked his followers if they knew anyone with the coronavirus.
The media personality suggested that the situation was still going to get worse. He encouraged those who still didn't believe that the disease exists to stay home.
Lasizwe than tweeted that the country, which is currently on the more relaxed Level 3 lockdown, needs to go back to Level 5.
"I think it's about time we as a country go back to lockdown Level 5!"

Tweeps flooded Lasizwe's comment section and gave him mixed reactions.
"I lost my job during Level 5. I don't have any form of income since then and since the president eased Level 3 I have been hustling, and tomorrow marks 3 months of me not paying my rent. But I guess you wont understand."
"This whole thing is 50/50, if we go back to Level 5 we die of hunger, lose jobs or even forget about our education and If we don't lockdown we risk our lives with the virus, get infected and die. But either way... We lose!!"
@brian_mlu responded to a tweep who said Lasizwe spoke from a point of privilege:
"Unfortunately the virus doesn't discriminate. It doesn't care if you're poor or rich."
