“Now is the time for us to band together as South Africans, put our country first, and defeat the Covid-19 virus.

The next three weeks of lockdown, and the months that follow this period, will be our greatest test as a nation. We can get through this if we stand united against our common enemy.

I ask that all South Africans focus on what needs to be done and comply with everything that is required of them. Our efforts to beat this virus are only as strong as the weakest link in the chain. Everyone has to be 100% on board and committed. Every measure is essential. Stay at home, avoid gatherings, maintain your hygiene, and cooperate with law enforcement and the SANDF. These will be trying times, but we must show restraint and peaceful cooperation in everything we do. That is the only way we will win.” – John Steenhuisen MP, Leader of the DA
