EFF leader Julius Malema is raising awareness about coronavirus while self-isolating at home.

He is spending quality time with family, but it's not glamorous at all. It's as real as many parents know it can be.

In a picture shared on social media, he's carrying a baby on his back. Malema's video has gone viral, as his followers admire his softer side.

On Monday, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a 21-day lockdown, starting at midnight on Thursday, as government tightens measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

SA has 402 cases of Covid-19. 

Ramaphosa said the lockdown was the only way to ensure that millions are safe. Health-care professionals, members of the military and police officers are among those exempted from the lockdown.
