On Thursday, South Africa authorities sought to calm fears over coronavirus deaths after health officials in the country’s most-populated province said they were ready to bury more than a million people.
Excavators sprung into action this week, to dig long rows of graves in cemeteries throughout Gauteng, which includes the cities of Johannesburg and the capital Pretoria, for possible mass burials.
After performing inspections of burial sites in Pretoria, the provincial head of health, Bandile Masuku, said Gauteng was preparing over 1.5 million graves.
“All our municipalities have been putting up capacity and acquiring more in terms of the land that they’ll need for burial,” Masuku said.
His announcement triggered a wave of anxiety in the province, which has so far recorded 75,015 coronavirus cases and 478 deaths, overtaking the Western Cape province as the epicenter of the virus in South Africa.
Nationally, 3,602 deaths have been recorded to date.
Authorities have since been scrambling to ease public fears that the province could see such an explosion in coronavirus-related deaths.
The health department said the government was working to improve and increase both the health system’s infrastructure and human resource capacity to deal with increasing pressure from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Long contained by the strict lockdown imposed in late March on South Africa’s 57 million citizens, the tally of coronavirus infections and deaths has begun to rocket.
Despite the confinement, the hospital system in Africa’s most-industrialized country is showing signs of buckling under the strain.
The much-feared “peak” of the health crisis seems to be approaching and with it increases the concern of the authorities.
Despite field hospitals deployed by the military or NGOs, “bed capacity is still expected to be breached or overwhelmed in all the provinces,” Mkhize warned. #s63
This man is a famous voodoo master in Djougou area. He was waiting in a brand new building the american ambassador (only her representative came at the end) who offered 40 000 euros to the community to make a 'museum' for the Taneka tribe.

Dalam sejarah Islam, kucing memiliki keistimewaan yang sangat luar biasa. Baginda Nabi Muhammad SAW bahkan berpesan kepada para sahabatnya untuk menyayangi kucing peliharaan, layaknya menyayangi keluarga sendiri.
Di samping itu, kucing peliharaan dari Nabi Muhammad SAW mempunyai kelebihan salah satunya mengeong ketika mendengar adzan, dan seolah-olah suaranya terdengar seperti mengikuti lantunan suara adzan.
Hukuman bagi mereka yang telah menyakiti hewan lucu ini (kucing) sangatlah serius, dalam sebuah hadist shahih Al Bukhari, dikisahkan tentang seorang wanita yang tidak pernah memberi makan kucingnya, dan tidak pula melepas kucingnya untuk mencari makan sendiri, Nabi Muhammad SAW pun menjelaskan bahwa hukuman bagi wanita ini adalah siksa neraka.
