How can we protect others and ourselves if we don’t know who is infected?

Practising hand and breathing hygiene is important at ALL times and is the best way to protect others and yourself. When possible, maintain at least a 1 metre distance between yourself and others. This is especially important if you are standing by someone who is coughing or sneezing. Since some infected people may not yet be showing any symptoms or their symptoms may be mild, maintaining a physical distance with everyone is a good idea, especially if you are in an area where COVID-19 is circulating.

There is no doubt in my mind that we will prevail. This is because South Africans have come together like never before to wage the struggle against this virus, together.
