COVID-19 Second Wave amidst the Festive Season

DSC 0643As the country looks ahead to the festive season while entering a second wave, the City of Ekurhuleni’s proactive approach continues.

The MMC for Health and Social Services Cllr Nomalozi visited Selope Thema clinic in KwaThema where she encouraged residents to heed the call of adhering to the #Covid19 regulations amidst the second wave of the pandemic.

“We are well aware that it is the festive season, but this is a different kind of season that calls for everyone to take extra precautionary measures to protect themselves and their loved ones.

 Our health facilities are geared up in responding to covid19 cases however, non-compliance is what causes numbers to rise. The responsibility rests with us because the virus does not move but people do, said the MMC.

The MMC further called for active citizenship and urge Ekurhuleni resident to call those who do not adhere to order, as it takes small gestures of asking a friend or neighbour to wear their mask properly.

Ekurhuleni health facilities offer free covid19 tests, and during the time the results are at the lab, residents are requested to self-isolate until they get their test results.
