South Africans have nothing to fear from Coronavirus, says Health Department and We Agree!

If you’re looking for a desired holiday destination then South Africa would be the place to be. Our Department of Health has taken a great stand towards protecting us from the global scare and together as a nation we will continue to work hand in hand with our health professionals to ensure that our people and visitors are protected from the infection.

WHAT IS AROUND ABOUT CARS DOING TO PROTECT OUR CLIENTS FROM COVID19?

We have gone the extra mile to ensure that both our clients and staff members are protected by the
infection by implementing hand sanitizers, face masks, latex gloves and disinfecting our vehicles
thoroughly to guarantee that our space is kept hygienically clean.

The purpose of this article is to lay South Africans and our tourists worries to rest and to provide you with some educational information as per the World Health Organisation. 

Together with the World Health Organisation we want you to BE INFORMED, BE PREPARED, BE SMART and most importantly, BE READY to fight COVID19. 

Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

1. WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer or wash them with soap and warm water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and warm water or using alcohol-based sanitizer kills viruses that may be on your hands.

2. MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

3. AVOID TOUCHING EYES, NOSE and MOUTH 

Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick

4. PRACTICE RESPIRATORY HYGIENE

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

5. IF YOU HAVE A FEVER, COUGH AND DIFFICULTY BREATHING, SEEK MEDICAL CARE EARLY! 

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.

 

 

6. STAY INFORMED AND FOLLOW ADVICE GIVEN BY YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER

Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.
