The Flattening the Curve Workstream of the Khayelitsha Covid-19 team, a multi-party and civil society forum to fight the spread of the pandemic, salutes all nurses on this year’s International Nurse’s Day.

The day arrives at the time where the country is dealing with the virus and Khayelitsha is one of the most affected areas. We rely on the nurses who are at the front line of the fight against the pandemic. While confirmed cases of Covid-19 continue to increase, through the work of our brothers and sisters, we are inspired by the numbers of recovered patients. As of Sunday we recorded 166 recoveries and that we attribute to work and efforts by these nurses.

We salute particularly those nurses who lost their lives due to the pandemic. Their bravery will not go unnoticed and should be commended.

On this day, we wish to reiterate our resolve to work tirelessly in pulling together all social forces to adhere to precautionary measures to avoid the virus. Social activity requires discipline so that there is less pressure on our health system and subsequently our nurses.

We will embark on a series of awareness programmes to stop the spread of the virus in public spaces where cluster transmissions are most prevalent. These programmes will be rolled out in consultation with all spheres of government, so that they complement all efforts in the fight against the spread of Covid-19.
