Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana has urged South Africans to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously and do what they can to help stop its spread.
Kekana has emphasised the importance of self-isolation and diligent hygiene practices in the fight against Covid-19's proliferation.
"The virus is real, let's not be naive and act as if we don't see," the Bafana Bafana international told Goal.
"The message is clear, let's wash our hands at least four times a day and don't forget to stay home.
"Let's follow these simple rules and save lives."
The six-time PSL champions went on to say that it was the correct decision to suspend all domestic football until the virus is overcome.
"Actually, it's so good that we took a break," added Kekana.
"Remember we are also human, and our families are in danger if we catch the virus, and also those who are close to our families, at work, at school.
"So more than anything we run more danger to society more than anybody else. Lots of travelling in different airports, so it was wise to stop until this gets sorted out."
