Best ways to fight COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) in Cape Town

This is our final episode until the lockdown ends.

To contain the spread of COVD-19 (coronavirus disease) the South African government has declared a nationwide lockdown. This means that all shops and businesses are closed (except those providing essential services) and that you cannot leave your home (except under strictly controlled circumstances). But there is hope! Not only has the National Arts Festival announced plans to go completely virtual, but many restaurants (and companies like Dial-a-Picnic) are now offering home delivery, much like many estates (and brands like Frost Popsicles) have special deals on wine. And while our podcast will be taking a break until we can promote events again, Cape Town’s beauty isn’t going away anytime soon. Take care and stay safe!
