South African President: People must remain vigilant to prevent the second wave of pandemic
South African President Ramaphosa stated in an open letter to all citizens on the 9th that the South African people must remain vigilant to prevent the second peak of Coronavirus Pandemic in South Africa.
Recently, the situation of South Africa’s pandemic prevention and control is not optimistic: after the relaxation of the “blockade order” for the pandemic in October, South African medical experts have found Coronavirus Pandemic virus in wastewater from many places, and several Coronavirus Pandemic clusters have occurred in many places in South Africa.
South African Health Minister Mukez previously warned that the current situation of Coronavirus Pandemic in South Africa is worrying, and the people’s relaxation has become a major obstacle to the current pandemic prevention.
In this regard, Ramaphosa said frankly that with the advent of the Christmas holiday, people’s travel demand will increase, and the pressure on pandemic prevention and control in South Africa will be greater, and the general public will be more likely to breed relaxation.
Therefore, it is necessary to maintain the “dikes of a thousand miles”. The vigilance of “collapse in ant nest”.
Ramaphosa pointed out that once the pandemic returns, the South African people will once again face a huge threat to their lives and safety, and signs of hard-won economic recovery will also be contained.
He urged the public to continue to comply with the strict requirements of pandemic prevention laws and regulations, and not to take off masks in the crowd at will.
However, Ramaphosa said that because the South African government took a series of emergency measures at the beginning of the outbreak, this laid a solid foundation for South Africa’s economic recovery.
Therefore, South Africa is currently in the stage of economic recovery. The focus of development is on stimulating growth and creating employment.
Up to now, the number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus Pandemic in South Africa has reached 737,278, and 19,809 deaths have been reported. The cure rate has reached 92%.
