On Saturday there were videos on social media of groups of South Africans who were protesting against vaccines and the wearing of masks in both Johannesburg and Cape Town.
There was a group spotted in Fourways with placards that were reportedly saying the COVID-19 pandemic has destroyed the economy and that the death rate was only 0.05%.
Some placards were saying the vaccine hasn’t been tested and that is was an experiment.
