Brandon Leigh chats to Belinda Abraham of the Cape of Good Hope SPCA to find out what pet-owners should and should not do during South Africa's 21-day lockdown.

According to WHO, there is no evidence that a dog or a cat or any pet can transmit COVID-19

- Belinda Abraham, Cape of Good Hope SPCA

The SPCA will still be open during this time of crisis, and are doing everything they can to prevent animal suffering.

We are going to have 23 staff, including a qualified Veterinarian, quarantined with our animals on-site.

We are very concerned that there's going to be an influx of abandoned animals.

By far the most common question posed by listeners and on social media was whether citizens would be allowed to walk their dogs.

While the government prefers people to stay at home, Minister of Health Zweli Mkhize confirmed that South Africans may walk their dogs and go for jogs. The lockdown is to avoid congregating in large numbers.

UPDATE: Police Minister Bheki Cele says government officials have decided that there will be no dog-walking allowed outside during the lockdown.
