Avoid Covid-19: RSA Updates

AVOID COVID-19 – Coronavirus Disease  – Update Status – South Africa

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.

Reporting recoveries – people who have recovered from the virus. The more we slow down the spread, the higher the recoveries will be without any deaths!

Whatever we do, we must ask (and answer) the most vital TWO questions:

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

= If they get sick, they cannot treat us if and when we have to go to hospital to recover.

(2) Do our hospitals have enough beds and equipment for the  South African health workers to do their jobs?

= If there is no bed space, then not only Covid-19 patients will suffer.

All existing non-Covid-19 patients must still be helped and served.

Insufficient beds and equipment will mean not only Covid-19 patients may die.

We must all, each one of us, avoid Covid-19 as much as possible so that the rate with which people get sick can be slowed down so that the hospitals can cope when we all do get infected. We must avoid Covid-19 to save others.

Why do you need to know about the status of our world?

Because people are dying and their families and loved ones are suffering. Those people could be your people when someone else is negligent.

If you have any empathy then help them!

How?

Stay at home and away from others when you can, 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.
