Country should return to level 5, says EFF

The number of the infections and deaths is continuously increasing in South Africa. Positive infections are currently standing at 168,061 and 2,844 deaths.

EFF stipulated that the numbers might be increasing in such a way that private and public sector would not be able to deal with such cases everyday hence level 5 lockdown should be implemented.

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a level 5 lockdown on the 23 March 2020 where people were recommended to stay at home without going to work.

Economy became more frail in such a way that relaxation of the level 5 stringent restrictions was resolved and the country went to level 3 to open more economic activities including reopening of schools.

South experienced spike in numbers of the infections and deaths ever since country relageted to level 3 of which Gauteng has been identified as a hot spot for coronavirus.

Premier of Gauteng David Makhura said a province is experiencing 3000 new infections per day that could result an implementation of stricter restrictions.

“We don’t want to do something for dramatic purposes without achieving results. But it is quite clear that we are going to have to do something extraordinary given where we are now. This may mean asking the national command council to introduce some of the restrictions we had in the earlier phases (of the lockdown).”

Covid 19 deaths and infections might increase during winter season in South Africa

Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize, projected a spike in the numbers of deaths and infections in South Africa that could force a country to consider a lockdown back to stage 4 or 5.

Dr Zweli Mkhize said people need to work and support frail economy while attention is also given to this pandemic by curbing it from spreading.

People are being urged to be more responsible for their lives, respect and follow precautional measures to fight against Covid 19.

Economy might be opened but that does not mean that the pandemic has been eliminated, disease is still out there.

People should understand that lockdown was necessary to get ready in terms of medical equipment and supplies, when it was relaxed, it did not mean that disease disappeared, people still need to protect themselves, as prevention will always better than cure.

Car mileage rollback on the rise

Odometer clipping or haircut is one of the rife habit that is being done by the car dealerships in South Africa. 

Mileage rollback is allowed on your own vehicle but not allowed for cars that will be sold in the market, that literally constitute fraud. 

When charging a car dealership with such crime, you have to produce proof to lay a charge against them. 

If you are looking for buying a second hand car, it is very important to be cautious and get a specialist that would test your car before purchasing it. 

It is also important to look for wear and tear inside the vehicle like worn steering wheel, seats. Our economy is very frail so you may end up buying a second hand car, of which that would be a bargain if that car was maintained regularly. 

Most of the second hand cars are not fully serviced that would give you some issues if you opt to buy that car. It is crucial to ask for a service book whenever you opt to buy a second hand car and chech its service history.

Follow up with a service center about the service history of a vehicle and check their stamp on the service book, some dealerships put their own stamps to deceive customers to buy partial serviced vehicles.
