City of Cape Town concerned residents ‘too relaxed’ amid pandemic

The City of Cape Town has raised concerns as its health department reported an increase in incidents of non-compliance to coronavirus protocols by residents.

The city council said its environmental health practitioners were “particularly concerned” about residents going about as per normal and not wearing the mandatory face masks as well as crowd management in shopping malls and other public places.

The council said it worked hard to overcome the peak of the pandemic in the province and the focus should be on rebuilding lives, communities and the economy as a whole, however, it would have all been in vain if residents continued dropping their guard against the deadly virus.

 

Cosatu asks workers to stay home for nationwide strike

The Congress of South African Trade Unions will hold a national "stayaway strike" tomorrow in protest against corruption, retrenchments and unemployment, gender-based violence and attacks on collective bargaining.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, workers have been asked to stay at home, rather than congregate in the streets.

According to the trade union federation's General Secretary, Bheki Ntshalintshali, a few people will join motorcades in cities including Tshwane, Polokwane, Mbombela, Rustenburg, Mthatha, Bloemfontein, and more.

 

Libya’s future is at stake  

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said that Libya’s future “is at stake” and world powers and those with interests in its long-running civil war should stop sending arms to the country’s rival governments and keep working towards a lasting ceasefire.

Guterres implored those at a virtual ministerial meeting, co-hosted by the UN and Germany, to support peace efforts “not only in words but in actions”, including immediately backing a widely violated UN arms embargo against Libya.

 He said the violations of the embargo are a scandal and call into question the basic commitment to peace of all involved.
