On the first of June 2020 the sale of alcohol started with a bang when many people were happy for being allowed to buy alcohol for the first time after many days of ban. Many people had planned to have birthday celebrations before South Africa had its first case of the virus then lock down was declared. Many people could not celebrate their birthdays despite having planned them earlier. This was worsened by the banning of the selling of alcohol and people were allowed only to consume at home unfortunately that was not a case because people. The past weekend saw many people celebrating their belated birthdays and others were celebrating their birthdays as from the 01-06-2020 and if alcohol sale continues this will see an increase of the virus cases as people are now socializing more than before.
