We, South Africans, love our curves, but here’s a bad one we need to flatten out. The coronavirus spreads from person to person like wildfire, causing the deadly covid-19 disease. If too many get sick at the same time (a steep curve!) our health system won’t be able to treat everybody. If we can limit the number of people getting sick at the same time (flattening the curve) the health system can cope.

The best thing you can do to help right now is to STAY HOME. STAY SAFE by following the health guidelines and STAY SANE with Food For Mzansi, by spreading facts, not fiction.

For now, staying home is literally the best way to stay safe. Covid-19 spreads through human contact, so don’t be a rebel who still visits friends and family during the lockdown. Wash your hands with soap or alcohol-based sanitiser often – for at least 20 seconds at a time. Don’t touch your face and rather sneeze and cough into your armpit. And, if you really have to go to the shops, chemist or doctor, keep at least two metres distance between you and other people.

[/td_block_text_with_title][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][td_block_text_with_title tdc_css=”eyJwaG9uZSI6eyJwYWRkaW5nLXJpZ2h0IjoiMyUiLCJwYWRkaW5nLWxlZnQiOiIzJSIsImRpc3BsYXkiOiIifSwicGhvbmVfbWF4X3dpZHRoIjo3Njd9″]

Wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds. The World Health Organisation says hand-washing is also an act of solidarity because it reduces the risk of infecting other people in your community.

[/td_block_text_with_title][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][td_block_text_with_title tdc_css=”eyJwaG9uZSI6eyJwYWRkaW5nLXJpZ2h0IjoiMyUiLCJwYWRkaW5nLWxlZnQiOiIzJSIsImRpc3BsYXkiOiIifSwicGhvbmVfbWF4X3dpZHRoIjo3Njd9″]

Stay active during the lockdown. In these strange and disquieting times, exercise can provide much-needed solace. There are also many workouts that can be done even in the most confined spaces.

[/td_block_text_with_title][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][td_block_text_with_title tdc_css=”eyJwaG9uZSI6eyJwYWRkaW5nLXJpZ2h0IjoiMyUiLCJwYWRkaW5nLWxlZnQiOiIzJSIsImRpc3BsYXkiOiIifSwicGhvbmVfbWF4X3dpZHRoIjo3Njd9″]

If you love your friends and family, don’t visit them during the lockdown. We need to flatten the coronavirus infection curve. Rather connect virtually via Facebook, Skype or WhatsApp video calls.

[/td_block_text_with_title][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”#00a651″ border_width=”3″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][td_block_text_with_title custom_title=” HOW TO STAY HOME AND STAY SANE.” block_template_id=”” tdc_css=”eyJhbGwiOnsibWFyZ2luLWJvdHRvbSI6IjIlIiwiZGlzcGxheSI6IiJ9fQ==”]

Social distancing does not have to mean loneliness. Try to stay in contact (remotely!) with your friends and family. Stay positive by creating a new routine for yourself, including regular exercises. There are many workouts that can be done in small spaces. There are even ways to stay social and date during the lockdown. If you don’t come out of this lockdown with a new skill, a side-hustle or more knowledge you never lacked time. You lacked discipline!

Take up gardening. This is a great time to take even better care of your plants. Gardening is safe and will bear much more fruit than staying locked up inside. Turn couch potatoes into real potatoes!

In time of crisis, facts matter most. Like the coronavirus itself fake news spread from person to person. Don’t be someone who helps misinformation endanger the lives of the people you love.
