Cape Town - ANC Deputy Secretary-General Jessie Duarte has urged South Africans to stay at home during the lockdown and that no more lives should be lost after two patients died in Cape Town after contracting coronavirus.

Duarte said on Friday this was a critical time for the country and the virus did not discriminate on age or race.

She said people needed to follow protocols on the coronavirus.

“The ANC appeals to you to please follow the rules so that we can all be safe and healthy. The coronavirus has already taken two lives. We hope and pray not more lives will be taken by the virus,” said Duarte.

She appealed to South Africans to be aware of the dangers posed by the coronavirus as it did not discriminate.

She said the people had to ensure they remained safe and healthy.
