We haven’t seen the full effect of Covid-19 yet, and when we do, fingers of blame will hone in without due diligence.
I’m going to put my boot in. This thing’s not over; not by a long shot.
When lockdown is over and the coronavirus takes hold in densely-packed townships and informal settlements, running rampant amongst those denied the luxuries of isolation and working from home, it’s going to enjoy its second breath.
And when people start dying by the dozens, even hundreds - and they will - South Africans will look for someone to blame. Social media has thrown up potential candidates: whites or ‘the rich’ - the two terms are apparently interchangeable.
But surely, that wouldn’t happen? After all, such claims are irrational.
