Cigarettes have been a big part of our economy for a long time and we have enjoyed the fruits of the industry as tax revenue.For the past 5 months we have shut down the sale of cigarettes and this has shown in our economy.The loss we have suffered is a loss but it seems that it might have been for the best because it did help to cut down the infection rate quite a bit.Imagine if cigarettes were on sale,there would have been a significant rise in the number of people infected.

I say this because smokers usually share cigarettes especially in the black community where money is scarce and people cannot afford to buy packs of cigarettes on a daily.The court battle was a glimmer of hope,but we can rest easy now because the battle is all but lost,you cant take the government to court and expect to win.So to all the die hard smokers,you will have to keep on being knocked off or you can just do the smart thing and stop smoking,its good for your health trust me.

the only one who is to be blamed for the sharing is that NDZ prices of illicit trade is to high and that is the cause of the sharing before ive never seen ppl sharing a cigg but now they have been sucked dry by this illicit trade of Zuma she is the cause of the spiking and no one else before i saw all ppl having their 20s but now they must ask and they will get but obviously they will share the only thing she got right is making the virus spread even faster cause all smokers refuse to quit because she say so it will not happen we will smoke even if it is ur rubbish

What a lot of piffle. I think that you should get your facts straight before writing an article. With the court case pending, how many people have been called to witness what effect smoking has on people pertaining to the COVID-19 virus, and all of them were in agreement that smoking does not have an effect on smokers. I think you should do your homework properly before reporting. 🌹
