Mzansi Magic’s The Queen took the time to
educate viewers about the outbreak of Covid-19 (coronavirus) just a day after
President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a national state of disaster on Sunday.
The scene has been posted on social media
to spread awareness about how we should behave and keep hands clean in order to
curb the spread of the virus.
In the scene Jerry (played by Shona
Ferguson) cautions Thato (played by Xolani Mayekiso) about making sure the
Corner House applies the correct precautionary measures that the president has
pleaded with SA citizens to adhere to.
Jerry comes into the Corner House to find
that it doesn’t have a lot of customers. The pair then conclude that it could
be because of what the president said in his speech the previous day.
He then advises Thato to take care of himself
by sticking to good hygiene behaviour and elbow-bump greetings instead of shaking
people’s hands so that there’s little contact with others.
Reiterating what the president said in his
speech about large gatherings – that no more than 100 people should gather at
one time – Jerry says no parties should be held at the establishment.
“#TheQueenMzansi PLEASE TAKE CARE.
