Forget about the lifting of alcohol ban for now says Zweli Mkhize. Doctor Zweli Mkhize is not in support of lifting the alcohol alcohol sales as he says it’s pretty beneficial in curbing the spread of the virus as well as reducing pressure in the health sector. In his expressed feelings he praised the ban for assisting in opening facilities to caring for Covid 19 patients.
Contradictory to the wishes of the stakeholders in the liquor industry, the Health Minister is unlimitedly supporting the ban. Will this thought go well with business people in the alcohol industry after only trading for three months in 2020.
Economic devastation linked to the ban has seen, South African Beer Association,. South African Breweries and South African liquor brands joining hands.
Though it’s like that Mkhize had to express his opinion in a statement..
“Hopefully, that’s going to continue for a while that we get this space to be able to manage people who are under the pressure of Covid 19, so we will then continue to monitor the situation and see when there would be the need to change the restrictions that have been put in place.”
