Cape Town is usually a vibrant and bustling city.
Sea Point is full of people walking on the promenade, enjoying a sundowner, or going for a run. The CBD is where you’ll find nightlife and restaurants, coffee shops, and coworking spaces.
It’s also the last place you want to be after 3PM if you’d like to avoid traffic.
To take it a step further, this incredible drone footage from News24, filmed by Chad Nathan (@gingerwithagopro) for The Cape Jewish Chronicle, really captures the emptiness of the city from a whole new perspective:
Christoff Albertyn also captured drone footage of Table View and Blouberg on day two of the lockdown:
Despite the general emptiness of the streets in the above videos, some people are still venturing outside in defiance of the strict laws and regulations keeping us inside.
Lieutenant General Elias Mawela told Bongani Bingwa on Talk Radio 702 that police in Gauteng had arrested 281 people since Sunday. In the Western Cape, 603 people had been arrested since the start of the lockdown, Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa said.
“It seems there are still people who just don’t care, who just do not adhere to these regulations,” Africa said.
While it’s important to remember that lockdown isn’t as easy for some as it is for others, there are also people out there who think they’re above the law.
Stay home, stay safe, and stay strong.
Hopefully, we’ll be back on those city streets soon, waving at each other from opposite pavements.
