    Could be because of this nonsense that went around on Whatsapp earlier today.

    @Dela Rey Steyn I don't think this is South African. We don't have "value stores" - or do we?

    EDIT: I wrote this before I saw your post confirming that it's fake.

    Personally, for economic reasons, I would have wanted couriers to stay open. Then all small businesses selling goods could have stayed open, even restaurants. It is much easier for a company to protect a courier than a whole grocer's compliment of staff interacting with people. We might still see a change in week #3 of the lockdown - but ultimately the lockdown is much more valuable to the well being of South Africa.

    SA is going to learn so much from this lock down, what the nation is capable of, and hopefully learn the value of human life. The inconvenience we experience in the next three weeks will shape our global outlook, and hopefully save lives. So grit your teeth and push through this time people.

    I also don't see the point of not allowing couriers to operate. It's easy to cover your face when accepting a delivery and to disinfect the parcel before bringing it into the house.

    I agree with @HPBotha , having the couriers operating as a fleet would have been a lot easier to control and manage than having 300 people in one place wanting a bread in most instances. And this could have helped a lot of businesses that is going to go down because of this. But I also agree that this will teach us a lot on how to or not to do certain things.

    To everyone out there stay safe and stay healthy. Let’s hope we make a dent in this in 21 days, otherwise it’s 42 days, but this one we cannot afford to lose.

    Is this just your opinion or do you speak for The Vape Guru company as well?
