As of March 27, 2020, South Africa has undergone a 21-day national lockdown to try to curb the spreading of the coronavirus within the country. The coronavirus cases within South Africa are currently at 1,462 with 5 deaths and 31 recoveries (reported negative).
Nurses and doctors are working around the clock to attend to infected individuals as well as conducting coronavirus tests at various testing points around the nation. It is important for us to stay at home and self-quarantine and practice social distancing to ease the work of our essential service workers.
The team at Urban Afro Concept is in support of the national lockdown as a means to slow down the spreading of the coronavirus disease and we believe that this epidemic can be beat if we remain unified and adhere to the lockdown rules and any other rules that may follow. We urge individuals to protect themselves and prevent the spreading of the virus by:
- Washing your hands for at least 20 seconds regularly using water and soap or using hand sanitizers.
- When you cough and sneeze, always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or flexed elbow.
- Stay at least 1 meter away from people who are unwell.
- Stay at home. if you feel unwell, self-isolate yourself from others in your household.
- And, do not touch your mouth, nose or eyes if your hands are not clean.
From the team at Urban Afro Concept we would like to extend our love and support to our nurses, doctors, supermarket workers, our President and all other individuals who offer up their time and risk their life’s each day to fight and contain this disease and ensure that everyone receives their basic essentials. We see you and we are grateful for the sacrifices you are all making for our country.
