On 23 April President Cyril Ramaphosa told South Africans to wear masks.
“As we begin the easing of lockdown restrictions from the beginning of May, we are calling on all South Africans to wear a face mask whenever you leave home. Our clothing and textile industry – including many small businesses – are gearing up to produce these masks on a mass scale,” he said in an address to the nation.
Earlier this month South African national minister of health Zweli Mkhize said: “There is no question that the use of masks is one of the best ways of preventing the spread of infection,” said Mkhize.
