Communities in informal settlements to be relocated amid COVID-19 outbreak
Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation Lindiwe Sisulu says plans are at an advanced stage to relocate residents from informal settlements in a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19.
South Africans are going through a 21-day lockdown in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Eleven South Africans have now died after contracting the coronavirus, with the number of infections rising to at least 1,655 as of Sunday night.
Sisulu says the government wants to reach out to the most vulnerable communities who cannot practice social distancing and move them to safer areas.
We are worried that if were to have an outbreak in an informal settlement, it will be a real disaster. We have identified land as close to the informal settlements and we have identified five areas.Lindiwe Sisulu, Minister - Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation
She says people need to be moved so that the spread of the virus is prevented.
