WATCH: Jerry Maake from The Queen educates viewers about coronavirus


Mzansi Magic’s The Queen took the time to educate viewers about the outbreak of Covid-19 (coronavirus) just a day after President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a national state of disaster on Sunday.

The scene has been posted on social media to spread awareness about how we should behave and keep hands clean in order to curb the spread of the virus.

In the scene Jerry (played by Shona Ferguson) cautions Thato (played by Xolani Mayekiso) about making sure the Corner House applies the correct precautionary measures that the president has pleaded with SA citizens to adhere to.

Jerry comes into the Corner House to find that it doesn’t have a lot of customers. The pair then conclude that it could be because of what the president said in his speech the previous day.

He then advises Thato to take care of himself by sticking to good hygiene behaviour and elbow-bump greetings instead of shaking people’s hands so that there’s little contact with others.

Reiterating what the president said in his speech about large gatherings – that no more than 100 people should gather at one time – Jerry says no parties should be held at the establishment.

“#TheQueenMzansi PLEASE TAKE CARE. #TheQueenMzansiCares #FergusonFilms @mzansimagic,” the post reads.
