Avoid Covid-19: Updates

AVOID COVID-19 – Coronavirus Disease  – Update Status

Moved regular updates to this page for easy access (19 March 2020). Daily information from 16 March.

The reality is that this Covid-19 is real with deaths across the world. Please take heed for the call: Do not spread the virus! Too many people realising too late that they have personally spread the virus.

Now reporting recoveries. The more we slow down the spread, the higher the recoveries without any deaths!

(Do we have enough supplies to protect South African health workers?)

Why do you need to know about the status of our world? Because people are dying and their families and loved ones are suffering. If you have any empathy then help them!

How? Stay at home, do not spread the virus. You could be causing the next death if you do not!!

You are NOT clever if you want to debate this fact, you are simply stubborn with a feeling of entitlement. God did not make you that way, you choose who you want to be. Start being a hero by staying at home!!

The South African Government Department of Health are making regular statements. Before we become hardened to devastating numbers, before we make the elderly and the weak sick, we need to comprehend that we must stop the spread of the virus!

The government cannot do this on their own, we need to help by being vigilant and not panic, be responsible and not arrogant.
