Ramaphosa has called for changes in behaviour where greeting by hand is minimized to avoid physical contact.

This development was after cases of coronavirus continued to rise in the country. The country is one of the coronavirus hotspots.

Ramaphosa encouraged the elbow greeting rather than handshakes.

“Because of the severity of this virus and its rapid spreading, the government will make funding available to capacitate the sectors dealing with the national response to the coronavirus outbreak,” he added.

Although there are many cases in South Africa of the virus, no deaths have been reported so far.

The country has stopped schools children from attending school and gatherings of more than 100 people have been prohibited

After emerging in Wuhan, China last December, the virus, officially known as COVID-19, has spread to at least 135 countries and territories.

The global death toll is now more than 5,300, with more than 142,000 confirmed cases, according to the World Health Organization, which has declared the outbreak a “global pandemic.”
