War against spread of COVID-19 rages on as country prepares for level 3

GROBLERSDAL – As the country prepares for the lower lockdown movement to level 3 on 01 June 2020, Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) joined hands with Half Way Toyota at the Groblersdal Taxi Rank on Monday in the distribution of sanitizing equipment.

The sanitizing equipment donated to the Groblersdal Taxi Association will help disinfect all taxis in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 with the country moving to level 3 from the 1st of June.

This as more people will be expected to return to work, thus the importance to prevent the spread of the virus within taxi ranks, as most people use taxis to commute from home to workplaces.

 On behalf of SDM Executive Mayor, Stanley Ramaila, Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Community Services, Thokozile Nchabeleng, said the distribution of the sanitisers showed that Groblersdal Taxi Association was working well together with other stakeholders including businesses.

 “We couldn’t be seeing this happening here today. We were here last month and as we were here, we saw that the taxi rank is working well. However, what we noticed was the problem of social distancing even though people were wearing masks. That is an area that needs attention,” said Nchabeleng.

Half Way Toyota representative, Vusi Mahlangu, said they have been on a two- week rank-to-rank campaign of sanitization of taxis.

“As a business we understand that COVID-19 has affected all of us as a country. And we saw it fit to get on our feet and use this opportunity to stand in solidarity with the industry which supports us the most. We are here to sanitise vehicles that ferry people on daily basis. The sanitiser lasts for three to four days after being used on a vehicle. We are working together with government to flatten the curve. We are spread throughout the country. This is our contribution to help fight the virus in the country.

President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday announced that the country would move to a lower level of 3 of the lockdown from 01 June 2020.
