The Capricorn District Municipality welcomes the drastic alert level 3 measures announced by President Ramaphosa to curb the spread of the coronavirus and save lives.

As we know, the announcement came in the wake of rapid increase in the number of new infections that are now driven by the new variant of the coronavirus that is reported to be more contagious than the original one. We are particularly concerned that our District is now amongst the hotspots. This means that more people are getting infected and a greater number of people are dying in our region more than before because the virus has exploited our lack of vigilance as people got tired of taking precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones.

We therefore plead with you to take the virulence of this virus seriously and adhere to the safety precautions and amended level 3 measures. Let us not let this virus into our homes. Let us not let our parents, grandparents and families pay the price for our inability to be responsible. This we can do by closing the gates on visitors and avoiding unnecessary movements and traveling, especially with public transport.

Let us triple our efforts in wearing our masks all the time, hand hygiene, avoiding contact with people and getting tested and self-isolating when showing symptoms or after being in contact with anyone who has tested positive.

This has become like a war never fought before and the Capricorn District Municipality pleads with you to work with government to flatten the curve and restore our District to its safer, liveable character that it is known for. The prospects of having a better 2021 depends on our actions during this period.

I thank you.

Cllr John Mpe - The Executive Mayor
