Leonida,

The same is happening in South Africa. The police and army are enforcing the national lockdown in slums and poor communities, by shouting, beating, and assaulting residents who have difficulty in staying home. The same level of enforcement does not happen in more affluent communities. Once again the poor are subjected to harsh and cruel conditions.

Civil society in South Africa is organizing to hold the government accountable, while providing a humanitarian response at a local level. You can read more about that Tshisimani - Centre for Activist Education’s facebook page: https://web.facebook.com/pg/tshisimaniCAE/posts/
