Scammers use coronavirus to trick fearful South Africans

South Africa's central bank has warned citizens against scammers visiting homes to "recall" banknotes and coins they said were contaminated with the novel coronavirus. To date South Africa has recorded 62 cases, the second-highest number of coronavirus infections in Africa after Egypt. President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced the closing of schools and banned public gatherings after numbers more than tripled over the weekend.
