Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana has urged South
Africans to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously and do what they can to
help stop its spread.
Kekana has emphasised the importance of self-isolation and
diligent hygiene practices in the fight against Covid-19's proliferation.
"The virus is real, let's not be naive and act as if we
don't see," the Bafana Bafana international told Goal.
"The message is clear, let's wash our hands at least
four times a day and don't forget to stay home.
"Let's follow these simple rules and save lives."
The six-time PSL champions went on to say that it was the
correct decision to suspend all domestic football until the virus is overcome.
"Actually, it's so good that we took a break,"
"Remember we are also human, and our families are in
danger if we catch the virus, and also those who are close to our families, at
work, at school.
"So more than anything we run more danger to society
more than anybody else. Lots of travelling in different airports, so it was
wise to stop until this gets sorted out."
