Video: Lockdown Level 3 – Who is really affected by the bans?

Alcohol is a hot topic in South Africa under the current lockdown. When the ban was lifted, we saw a spike in gender-based violence and abuse. On the other hand, it also gave back people their jobs – until recently. The big question is, is the coronavirus the only pandemic South Africa is facing? Who are these bans really affecting?
