With Covid-19 posing a bigger threat than ever in the country, South Africans have had to take stricter measures. A local woman recently headed online to express her frustration at the current confusion and extreme measures involved with South Africa's Covid-19 regulations.
Taking to Twitter, @__Nonhle explained how she was turned away from the bank after she was wearing a surgical mask and not a cloth one. According to the post, she was told that surgical masks were not permitted.
"Surgical Masks are not permitted anymore? Haibo we are in hell. FNB just turned me away coz I didn’t have a cloth mask,"she wrote.
South Africans had this to say:@Karabo_Mokgoko said:
"That person has personal issues. No such thing. Surgical masks Are safer than cloth masks."
"No ways Expressionless face I just bought another box of surgical masks yesterday. ABAME KANCANE."
"Doctors wear surgical masks to treat covid patients and you want to tell me it's not safe to enter with at FNB?"
"Is it FNB or the security guard? Phela labo they do their own thing sometimes nabo."
In other Briefly.co.za news, @callmethaboo on Twitter shared a picture of a R1 000 fine for not wearing a mask. It is unclear if Thabo received the fine or if he just shared it but the post has still gone viral as South Africans are in shock.
The incident occurred in Milnerton, Cape Town. According to the fine, the person who received the fine is a taxi driver. The reasoning written in the fine is: "Failure to wear a mask while transporting people."
The fine was dated 29 December. SAns cannot believe that someone has already been fined for failure to comply with government regulations.
