READ | Sex workers call on Ramaphosa to include them in plan to aid workers during lockdown
Lydia hails from Welkom in the Free State and has been working as a sex worker for the past 15 years.
However, she added that since the implementation of the lockdown, sex workers have been unable to work all night.
Rebecca, from Lesotho, said she became a sex worker last year, after losing her job as a domestic worker.
Sex Worker Education and Advocacy Taskforce (Sweat) spokesperson Katlego Rasebitse said sex workers had been affected by the lockdown.
Rasebitse said sex workers were also entitled to receive social relief, including food parcels, from the government.
