Faulty reasoning for tobacco liquor bans

WHY do the Coronavirus Command
Council members and the president
not make public how many smokers
have been infected by the virus and
have had to be in ICU and put on
ventilators? This was their reason
given for the ban on cigarettes. If

In the Sunday Times there were
stories published from people who
have had the virus and what they

section of the hospital unless they
are positive. They are admitted to a

If the rest of the country took
the advice of the Western Cape
and followed the way they handled
the virus, and where the cases
of infection are dropping by the

presently are doing.
I look at daily updates on the
Western Cape dashboard and on
WhatsApp on current casesin South
Africa and keep records of these, so I
know exactly what the numbers are.
