While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused near pandemonium, the government has stepped in to allay fears and spread accurate information. It launched a unique website:

https://sacoronavirus.co.za/

A technology company is providing users with free access to the website. Therefore, you do not need data or WiFi to access the site.

It answers the most frequently asked questions about the spread of the virus and what SA is doing in terms of prevention.

A special WhatsApp SupportLine has also been launched.

By midday, March 23, 9315 COVID-19 tests had been completed in South Africa, 274 people tested positive, and no deaths were reported.

You can reach the emergency hotline on 0800 029 999 and the WhatsApp Support Line on 0600-123456.
