He said it b4 and many of our people are in the grave as we speak. Don't penic leyae rata. After that you guy's can't handle your own panic. Why we should not panic?you just useless somebody like Tedros,before covid reached our shores you said the same,today we lost family members,friends and valuable professional persons in our societies,Give me 1 BOLD reason 'Why we should not panic' while in India people are perish

Wee ke khabazela🙆‍♂️ Ooooooohhoooo nangoke futhi uMkhize nkosi yam!!!!! Same thing was said when the first Covid 19 case was reported and now we have over 50 000 death cases... This is one dogdy character 🙄 They still say thatour president him self said the same last year march when they get first case..then what happend we lost families...

That's what he said last year March..' we don't have to panic about corona, government is well resourced to face it all the airports will have detectors for covid' but what happened, boom someone identified in PMB with the covid..we can't trust this government 😏😏 Why not cause you are still allowing them to enter into our country why don't you close all the ports

I swear if we get the Indian variant in SA we will sue the government. Why are the borders open for them?

63 more Covid deaths as Mkhize warns of rising infections in seven provincesHealth Minister Zweli Mkhize has warned of rising infections, notably in the Free State, Gauteng, the Northern Cape and North West provinces. It’s bizarre! He warns us and then withholds the vaccine and won’t stop travellers from high risk countries. What agenda is that? Lose Lose. Well, yes. They are the coldest provinces in South Africa! Obviously they would expect more flu related illnesses. And what flippin COVID? Ofcourse they R rising....15th May is coming up. You cannot extend SOD yet again with 800 cases a day!!! & besides DlaminiZuma hasn't being allowed to take away our alcohol & send us to bed early in a long time...she needs her fix! Hopefully more sheep have woken up by now🙏🙏

Now he says don't panic, after spreading fear for over a year. He should be on trial for crimes against humanity with the rest of GovernmentZA Before there was a first virus 🦠 from family who were in Italy 🇮🇹 , you told us that you were ready for Covid and even now you are still lying. That variant is here already,why they are making it seem like it isn't has me wondering🤔 when they tell you don't panic.. You should panic

Why are other countries panicking? They are pro active and care for their citizens Says the man who gave the ANC bank account details to an Angolan business woman for 'donations'. Hai mkhize must suspend himself. Don’t panic!....I’m basically 💩 myself! This is serious & getting worse! I switch on the TV & I just cry & stress at what I see & this Indian variant is on our sea’s - we cannot handle stronger, mutating viruses 🦠

Why not !!!!!!!! We not going back to lockdown Who would trust the opinion of Zweli? 🤷🏾‍♂️

Mkhize sounds third-wave warning as 'worrying trend' in Covid-19 cases emerges'We can all play our part to ensure that this rise in infections does not turn into a third wave,' said health minister Dr Zweli Mkhize I was told that every achievement begins with the decision to try, ignorance destroys so many opportunities. I'm a victim but I was convinced by the right person GRACRUSSE Ok..so the turdwave is now only 8 days away? CLOSE THE DAM BORDERS!!!

This is Zweli Mkhize's slogan, he said the same thing even before this virus arrived in SA Under the 2nd wave you said we shouldn't call it a SOUTH AFRICAN COVID-19 VARIANT. Charity begins in the bush,,, 😅😅 So when do we start to worry? When hundreds have died? They r still considering should we introduce quarantine for travellers,let alone stopping all direct & indirect flights. Perhaps being vaccinated has emboldened them.

Mr 'don't panic' what is so difficult to do what other country is doing to us shut them out. Khabazela niyathanda ukuba good at the expense of the innocent RSA Wasn't even Imagine a whole country listening to. Mkhise say 'Don't panic' 🤣.. We are warriors, fear has never been part of us.. we don't fear anything. We don't panic.

Why didn’t you ban travel to and from India immediately when we saw deadly stats from India? What about 3rd wave Same shit was said before that guy went to italy Also says the man who has been vaccinated!

Yeeeer maarn is this guy really a Doctor Arg like really? When are you going to ban India to south Africa travel. Y'all have decaying brain 🤬🤬🤬 Like they played their part in protecting the country against indian vibrant

No we don't panic because of variants, we panic because your track record of dealing with them is dodgy! This the same man who didn't want to close borders when we first heard of the outbreak last year. Indian variant has morphed 3 times. We're in hell if it arrives here Said the same at the start of the China Virus..and look at us now...

Why not? Aaahh the covid gift which keeps on giving for the cadres trust issues ka cool! India has about 412k positive cases a day. We won't have that ever. How would we test so much? 😱😱😱😂😂🤣🤣🤣 DrZweliMkhize please do the right thing, and hire more Environmental Health Practitioner’s to do the job more especially at the Port of entry.

Have we not heard those words last year 🤔 These people r trying to kill us…

Officials testing for Covid-19 strain from India, Mkhize confirmsThere are no known cases in SA of the B.1.617 Covid-19 variant, but several people are having their positive samples tested, health minister Dr Zweli Mkhize said. Soon we will have maybe tomorrow, this is SA led by fools Yhu ha ah! Hope we are not too late Dr Mkhize, what is the B.1.617 covid 19 symptoms

Didn't he say don't panic we are read for the coronavirus when it started In other words, PANIC When the cANCerous wANCers say...'Don't panic'.... you know it's time to run to the hills and really start to panic.. How can we not panic whilst we see Indians die like insects, and the way our government is working on a snail's pace regarding the vaccine roll out. This guy is not serious.

🤣 Nx. Ayyy uyasidakelwa Khabazela🤞🤞🤞 The only time we panic is when Kopdoek takes the mic. 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

Officials testing for Covid-19 strain from India, Mkhize confirms“The vessel has been secured and is under strict security in its berth until authorities decide to move it to the outer anchorage under strict security until the containment period is successfully completed,” said Mkhize.

ANOTHER EXCUSE FOR HARD LOCKDOWN. But something really happened last time we were told not to panic We dont trust govt that one is dangerous just imagine how pur Indian brothers eat hot chilli and garlic ! I don't panic about SA, Indian, Brazilian or Chinese variants I panic about an untested dangerous gene therapy masquerading as a vaccine being forced on us. Never believe what this man says he is a puppet nothing more verify, investigate.

We definitely need to panic just because of that statement Why not... Which very weak borders and health system? How about we try vaccines Bheki Cele probably on stand by to close taverns. Tell that to Kopdoek. She is looking for an excuse to extend state of disaster. VoetsekANC

Otsubile maybe We've heard that before and many people have died, or are we the guinea pigs of WHO is this an experiment? Bull shit of what this minister is saying. That's what you said about their vaccine This is looking all too familiar We’ve lost our fathers, mothers, granny’s, sister’s, brothers, kids through Covid-19 and here you are telling us not to panic Mr Mkhize

This monkey thinks only people come from India 😂 trade ports opened and with 400 000 infections a day 4000 people dying a day in a far more medically advanced country... imagine 3rd wave coming for us... What kind of stupidity is this? That’s what you said in March last year dude Kahle kahle kmele sife la...

You should panic Mkhize. Should A South African contract it in South Africa, it is you that is going to be sued for gross negligence in importing it without secure borders. On that thought.....sleep well!

lol... Panic, then dont panic.... really? The corrupt ANC government is worse Wa lwala o we must not I remember that 2020 February... Hebanna 😳😂 Y’all said the same thing ka those ones who came from Italy Your will be the first to panic and go to level 5 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️ DrZweliMkhize People will panic because they are not vaccinated like you. indiacovid

We'll panic when it's engulfing our ports. Mcim...How many must die first?
