Seems that many local and international people have yet to take the severity of the coronavirus pandemic seriously. Here in Mzansi, a large group of local youths has proved this to be the case after they started a tunnel party in Pretoria.

In a clip that was shared online by various Twitter accounts, the group of people can be seen closing off the Daspoort Tunnel in Pretoria with a convoy of cars. In the clip, many of them are also drinking, dancing, and ignoring almost every Covid-19 safety guideline. Sharing the clip on his page, Peter Ndoro wrote:

Influencer tests positive for Covid-19: "Got the rona, but I'm OK."
"#COVID19 is real. My heart breaks to see young people ignoring the warnings. They shut the Daspoort Tunnel between Claremont and Danville in Pretoria. Sadly it’s their parents and elderly caregivers that will feel the brunt of virus when they bring it home."

Meanwhile, South Africans have had this to say about the clip:

@Solwayo1 said:

"That is why some of us are calling for a 3-month global lockdown. This virus will not be defeated with half-hearted approaches. More people will continue to die."

@MutasaTsungai said:

"Pathetic whilst European countries are now taking tougher measures this is what you get from irresponsible idiots,l don’t mind if they infect each and die but the sad thing which bothers me is that they take it home to their innocent parents and vulnerable elderly people."

@BbwMaturity said:

"Bring back level 4/5. This nonsense will stop."
