Archbishop Thabo Makgoba of Cape Town is "desperately worried" that South Africans - and people throughout Africa - are not taking the coronavirus seriously enough. He says in a public service announcement that he is worried that Africans will treat the virus as "a European problem", and not an African problem. "Viruses do not have passports, they don't know borders, they don't respect race or colour."
