People across South Africa are bracing for a 21-day lockdown after the government announced sweeping new measures to tackle the spread of the new coronavirus.  

This announcement was made yesterday by the Country’s president Cyril Ramaphosa during a live broadcast.

The move was unprecedented.

It is the first time since South Africa became a democracy in 1994 that a president has stripped away the most basic freedoms of citizens – to walk, to shop, to socialize and to pray freely.
