There has been a call for the Muslim community to intensify their vigilance as a number of mosques in the Cape have had to temporarily close due to Covid-19 cases. The Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) says the vigilance is to avoid a second wave. It also says it doesn’t want to see mosques and other places of worship become hubs for “super spreaders” of Covid-19.

Imams and mosque committees have been urged to maintain strict discipline by ensuring that all health protocols are in place. The statement comes a day after the Western Cape Premier Alan Winde announced that the province is experiencing a resurgence of Covid-19. New infections have spiked in the Garden Route and Cape Metro.
