South Africa's cycling team Qhubeka has said it will provide bicycles to health workers who will be conducting mass testing as part of measures to halt the spread of the coronavirus.
South Africa's government plans to test 30,000 people every day and Qhubeka team owner Douglas Ryder told the BBC's Newsday programme that their donation will help get more people tested.
Quote Message: We're embarking on a project now to mobilise those people on bicycles so that they can see more people... and do more during this time of the pandemic."
The team has a mission to promote cycling in Africa and has been providing bicycles to schoolchildren across South Africa under the slogan "bicycles change lives".
But it has suspended handing over bicycles to children and is focusing on increasing the mobility of health workers.
South Africa has to date confirmed more than 1,700 cases of coronavirus, the highest in the continent and is in the second week of a three-week-long nationwide lockdown.
