PODCAST | ASK A DOCTOR: Dr Bosch explains social distancing vs self-isolating as a family

accreditation

Parent24 has produced a podcast series Ask a Doctor, where we talk to medical professionals about the various issues that affect our kids, and our families.  

We asked Dr Carol Bosch, a Cape Town based GP, to explain social distancing, and how it's different to self-isolating, and to share more about what families can do as they face down Covid-19 fears.   

She touches on playdates, grandparents, family hygiene and whether to go to the park or not, among other relevant topics. 

Listen above.
