President of the Medical Research Council, Professor Glenda Gray, says the size of the second wave of the coronavirus outbreak in South Africa depends on the actions of ordinary people.

People are still expected to wear masks, practice social distancing and regular washing of hands for at least 20 seconds.

Level One of the lockdown has seen most sectors of the economy reopening – but experts say many people are falling into a false sense of security about the virus.

South Africa has over 712 thousand confirmed cases of the coronavirus. COVID-19 has killed almost 19 thousand people in the country.

Professor Gray says South Africans must continue to act responsibly by wearing masks, social distancing and regularly washing hands.
