Health Minister Zweli Mkhize has warned that the taxi industry's decision to violate lockdown regulations amounts to creating COVID-19 death traps.
Mkhize says he is disappointed by an industrywide decision to fill taxis to 100 per cent capacity and reopen inter provincial travel from today.
South Africa has now recorded over 138
100 cumulative coronavirus infections, most of which are in the Western Cape, Gauteng and the Eastern Cape.
The number of recorded deaths stands at 2 456.
Mkhize has advised taxi commuters to refrain from boarding overloaded taxis."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/106244611_3296922370360124_3885771004498081497_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=8024bb&_nc_ohc=8iyBL5Oqb8UAX8iThpW&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&oh=859a0788be2dc3690d2e7d86296b53b4&oe=5F1F53E5"
