Former Proteas cricket manager and Lenasia doctor Mohammed Moosajee has urged South Africans to respect & abide by the social lockdown.
President Cyril Ramaphosa imposed a 21-day lockdown of the country among other stringent measures in a bid to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus in South Africa.
The lockdown comes into effect from midnight tonight.
Speaking to Radio Islam, Dr Moosajee says South Africa and the globe is facing a global pandemic of enormous proportion - a highly infectious new virus to which we have no immunity.
“The national shutdown has become both necessary & mandatory! please respect & abide by this social lockdown, for all our well-being, specifically the most vulnerable - i.e. our beloved elders & those with chronic medical conditions. A reminder also to uphold our spirit of Ubuntu & humanity towards others."
Dr Moosajee has also urged citizens not forget those that are less fortunate & collectively do whatever we can to assist.
