To South Africans, we have found a new way to relieve ourselves from these tensions by making skits and funny images from this situation. We are so desensitized to traumatic events that we simply can’t be serious enough to consider we are all at risk. We keep telling ourselves that we survived Listeriosis and Ebola, we simply look at Coronavirus as a nuisance that will pass soon, like the seasonal flu.
Now that Cyril has given us valuable information such as the elbow touch greeting etc. We going into a state of panic as to how we will be able to party without further aggravating the virus to spread.

We as African countries have also put travel restrictions on both US and European country nationals which really shows how serious our governments are on protecting us.
