Re­open slowly

The Advertiser - - LETTERS -

IN the last few days, a num­ber of letters have been pub­lished ad­vo­cat­ing im­me­di­ately open­ing busi­ness in the man­ner it was be­fore COVID-19.

The au­thors seem to be fol­low­ing Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s ide­ol­ogy of the “cure be­ing worse than the dis­ease”.

Through both good man­age­ment, and surely some good luck, we in SA have seen lit­tle of the dis­as­ter that many other parts of the world are suf­fer­ing.

To ad­vo­cate aban­don­ing this and re­turn­ing to our old ways, with­out at least a vac­cine be­ing avail­able, seems ex­tremely fool­hardy and down­right dan­ger­ous.
