South Africa had all chances to prevent Coronavirus entering the country. This calamity started in Wuhan, China during December 2019.
On the 5th March 2020 South Africa recorded the first case of Coronavirus. During January and February 2020, I believe there should be drastic measures South Africa should have taken to cancel all the international trips and guard the borders to ascertain that the virus is not entering the country.
Repatriation of 122 South Africans from China exposed the country to the risks of contracting the virus.
I believe if all precautional measures had put into action timeosly, South Africa shouldn’t have suffered the circumstances.
