A video of a man who throws a tantrum after he's told to wear a mask inside a store has gone viral on social media.
The Clicks customer refused to follow the Covid-19 regulations and repeatedly told the store's employee that he could walk around the store without his mask.
The man referred the store to the Liberty Fighters Network’s win against the government in June but left out the key detail that the case is actually subject to an appeal, and all current Level 3 regulations – including the guidelines on wearing masks – remain in place, according to The South African.
Briefly.co.za reported that The Gauteng High Court is only allowing Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to appeal a portion of the judgment concerning the lockdown. The minister was also given 10 days to amend the lockdown regulations.
The video, shared on Twitter by Matshela Koko, has been viewed just over 90 000 times (at the time of publication).
Tweeps have shared mixed reaction's to the man's actions.
"But the guy is right, wearing a mask is more dangerous than not wearing it and that’s a fact!!!"
"Regarding the case law he referred to, we must remember that this is unprecedented. So economists and health experts are using what they have to achieve their different goals."
