IN CASE YOU MISSED IT THIS WEEK...

THE COUNTRY IS MOVING INTO LEVEL 1 ALERT
On Wednesday night, 16 September, President Cyril Ramaphosa took to the podium to announce South Africa’s move into level 1. The move will take effect from midnight on Sunday, 20 September, and will bring with it several new regulations such as a later curfew, ease in alcohol sales, international travel and more. Further details from the respective ministers will be published in the coming weeks regarding level one lockdown


BIG KUDOS TO OUR HEROES AND HEALERS
There is no doubt South Africans deserve a giant pat on the back for our Covid-19 fight. But we can't forget the healthcare heroes who are still battling it out on the front line. Dr Yenzi Ngema says that as health care workers "we never had the chance to get used to hearing the words 'thank you'." For that reason, she began the #thankthemedics campaign, raising funds through backabuddy.co.za to gift randomly selected health workers with a R250 voucher. To make your own contribution you can donate online via backabuddy.co.za.
