South Africa is currently undergoing a rather violent and even deadlier second wave of the global coronavirus. On top of that, a new and harsh second strain has been found in some of those who tested positive for the virus.
The news has sparked fear and anxiety in many of the country's citizens as everyone wonders what the next step will be from the government that will help reduce the tragedies that have been brought on by the second wave.
Soon many locals headed to Twitter to express their concern over whether or not the country will go back to level 5 of the lockdown. Many of them also shared what they believe the best measures are that should be taken.
Read a few of their tweets below.
"#level5 In challenging times, focus on what you can control. The rest is just noise...#COVID19 #level5"
"I don't understand why we are not on #level5 lockdown yet. Nifuna ukubonani?"
"why are nonessentials allowed to open on a #level5 ? Then ask us to not do sales? The sales are the only thing keeping businesses rolling in January! Worse yet we’d still have to be paying rent etc, very inconvenient for businesses"
Briefly.co.za also reported that in South Africa and perhaps even abroad, festive family feuds are an actual thing. Whether arguments arise from too much wine or about who should be doing the dishes, at least one fight is always expected. This is why a young lady, @fifimoeng shared some advice with her followers for the upcoming Christmas weekend:
"When you’re 25+ you should really just come home on the 24th of December and leave on the morning of the 26th before you start fighting anyone," she wrote in her tweet.
Soon the post was flooded with comments from Mzansians who weighed in on her advice.
