DJ Sbu has issued a warning regarding the possibility of a second lockdown.
Considering the lingering aftermath of the previous lockdown, which persisted for two years, this prospect raises concerns about its potential impact.
The previous lockdown resulted in widespread job losses, business closures (some of which were permanent), disruptions in education, and restrictions on outdoor entertainment, among other consequences.
South Africa initiated its first lockdown on March 27, 2020. Subsequently, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a gradual easing of restrictions from May 1, 2020, eventually reaching Alert Level 1 by September 21, 2020.
In December 2020, the country experienced a second wave of COVID-19 infections, leading to the reimplementation of lockdown measures.
The situation fluctuated between various alert levels based on infection rates and variants.
DJ Sbu, a media personality, musician, and entrepreneur, expressed concerns that a second round of lockdowns might be imminent, pointing to similar developments overseas.
He urged people to prepare for challenging times ahead, advising responsible financial management and business readiness.
While this is not an official announcement, DJ Sbu’s message emphasizes the importance of vigilance and preparedness amid the ongoing pandemic and its unpredictable course.
