The coronavirus disease, COVID - 19, outbreak continues to be dominant worldwide, which developments are a cause of concern.
We commiserate with those whose families have succumbed to the virus, which development is also threatening the real economy, supplies and demands.
Gratitude is extended to the World Health Organisation, our Government and other worldwide authorities and interested parties for keeping us apprised of developments and safety recommendations for adoption.
It is commendable that scientists are tirelessly researching and developing therapies and vaccines for trial, the success of which we all pray for. In the intervening time, Zero Harm is everyone’s responsibility. Guided by the safety recommendations, every individual should take responsibility for preventing the spread of COVID - 19 thus lessening the risk at our workplaces and communities.
