According to ZAlebs one way many South Africans believe will reduce the infection is by travelling less especially to high-risk countries.
Tone deaf Amanda du-Pont was recently dragged for travelling to a country that has confirmed cases of the Coronavirus.
The Turkish Airline is said to have implemented safety precautions and disinfecting methods, approved by international authorities.
As an avid traveler Amanda shared how much she loves travelling and is excited to travel to Turkey. She was labelled reckless and irresponsible.
Her and many influencers attempt to advertise the airline went south.
Turkish Airlines Brand team pushing South African influencers to pump out content of themselves on flights, in order to alleviate the consumer fear – and influencers obliging – is the epitome of all parties not being able to read the room.
