Cape Town has been hit by a devastating wildfire. On Sunday morning, 18 April, at 8:45 am, the City of Cape Town’s Fire and Rescue Services responded to a “vegetation fire” above the M3 motorway at Hospital Bend, opposite the famous Groote Schuur Hospital (where the world’s first heart transplant was performed).
According to the situation dashboard on the World Health Organisation website, as of Monday, 16 march, there are more than 164,837 confirmed cases of Coronavirus COVID-19 in 146 countries/territories, with just over 4,970 deaths. Wild speculations about Coronavirus (COVID-19) are being spread by fear-mongers and gullible people pass the panic along through their social networks. As Christians, we need to be balanced, wise and practical.
