“We can’t rest until we find a vaccine”: Zweli Mkhize warns of possible COVID-19 surge
Health Minister – Zweli Mkhize has sounded a note of warning to the mass, saying a possible COVID-19 resurgence could occur as the country moves to lockdown level one.
The warning comes after the recent record of cases which currently is at 661,221, while the death toll is at 15,953.
Mkhize said the country is still battling with coronavirus despite the recent move to level one.
“South Africans need to know that level 1 is not like everything is over. It’s just to say let’s try rebuild the economy, let’s try build our social and religious traditions and everything. We have to try to bring ourselves to normality. That’s all it means, but it is a new normality. It’s no longer the same as before,” Mkhize said on Monday.
“There’s a pre-Covid world and a post-Covid world. We are now in the post-Covid world. We have to make sure we take precautions because infections can resurge. We must not lose the message and be complacent. We have to continue the fight and therefore the containment measures remain in place.”
Mkhize also cautioned that there was a surge in the number of weekly infections.
“We are not out of the woods,” he said.
“We are searching for a vaccine. We can’t rest before we get a vaccine.”
