A local man recently took to Twitter to share how his family Christmas plans were left in ruins after his brother got infected with the coronavirus. SieraajAhmed shared how he was planning on heading to Cape Town.
In the heartbreaking post, he explains that he will now stay in Pretoria with his son while his brother self-isolates to protect himself and the rest of the family. He concluded the post by asking everyone to stay safe.
"My brother (in Cape Town) tested positive after his office-mate tested positive, my bro-in-law is symptomatic. Half my big family isolating, all of us in tears today, and my son & I staying put in Pretoria, CT trip cancelled. Stay home if you can, stay outdoors if you can't,"he wrote.
SA had this to say about the post:
"Hectic! All the best. CPT is just scary at the moment."
"The biggest concern with COVID-infections is that many of us try to adhere to the rules but that one person within the trust-circle makes a mistake or does not follow the rules & this has a big negative ripple effect on the families/communities/cities. Speedy recovery to your family."
