To our valued customers
President Cyril Ramaphosa declared that the Republic of South Africa is in a national state of disaster and that extraordinary measures should be put in place to curb and stop the spread of the coronavirus
It is with regret that we announce the indefinite postponement of Magical Sea & The Wonderland that was scheduled for Zulu Nyala 21st and 22nd March and Heartfelt Arena 4th and 5th April 2020. The postponement has been necessitated by the cases of the deadly Coronavirus (Covid-19) that have now been reported in South Africa. Although the first case was only reported last week, by 18 March 2020, the country had recorded a staggering 82 cases.
While the authorities are working around the clock to curtail the continued spread, it has become apparent that gathering masses in the prevailing situation is not advisable. To ensure public safety, Magica Sea and The Wonderland has decided to postpone the event. New dates for the event will be announced once the situation is under control. Constant updates will be made on our official platforms like Facebook and email. Ticket holders are advised to hold on to their tickets for they remain valid until the event. Those who wish to book can do so as the ticket booking platform will remain open. The Organizer will not make any refunds because the even has not been cancelled. In the event of a cancellation by the event organizer, terms and conditions apply.
We ask our loyal clientele to be patient while the country’s public health system is in control of the situation. We would have preferred to continue with the event because postponement and cancellation of events costs us lots of money. Even bigger events than ours have either been cancelled or postponed and it is prudent that we reschedule. We encourage people to maintain utmost hygiene and follow World Health Organisation directives among them constantly washing their hands with soap, avoiding touching their nose, mouth and eyes.
While the Coronavirus is just a week old in South Africa, it was first reported in China’s Wuhan Province in January. To date, the virus has killed over 6 000 people while over 160 000 cases have been reported as of 17th March 2020. Although, China was initially the epicenter, reports say China cases are decreasing sharply while Europe has become the new epicenter. This has resulted in the cancellation of thousands of sporting activities while others have been postponed.
According to the World Health Organisation, Coronavirus is characterised by mild symptoms including a runny nose, sore throat, cough, and fever. Illness can be more severe for some people and can lead to pneumonia or breathing difficulties. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. Older people, and people with other medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease), may be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill.
