The South African Medical Association (SAMA) has called on government to enforce stricter lockdown measures - saying some members of the public are not adhering to Covid19 health protocols.
South Africa is operating under lockdown level two - amid the third wave of the coronavirus in parts of the country.
Department has recorded more than 5000 new daily cases for a third consecutive day - taking the country's tally to one 1 686 041 cases since the start of the pandemic.
SAMA's Chairperson is Dr Angelique Coetzee: "We would urge - and I know I have been criticised for asking for stricter lockdowns or curfews over the weekend - but the truth of the matter is that people don't listen anymore and we need to protect the average person out there who is doing things correctly.
But unfortunately when they get into a place where other people are - in confined spaces like taxis or buses - all that work where someone doesn't wear their mask, they can get the infection."
