SA Jagters Nuusbriewe

Hier is ons reeds by die einde van die tradisionele jagseisoen waarvan ons die helfte verloor het weens Covid-19 inperkingregulasies. Dit is nou dag 153 van grendeltyd met `n duidelike afname in die getal infeksies. Ons lewens gaan nog nie dramaties verander nie, selfs al is ons nou op vlak 2. Die risiko bestaan dat die siekte en die impak daarvan weer kan opvlam. Wees versigtig en bly veilig.

We have reached the end of the traditional hunting season of which half have been lost due to Covid 19 restrictions. It is day 153 of lockdown with ʼn significant decrease in the number of infections. Our lives will not change dramatically at level 2. The risk of new infections remains. Be careful and stay safe. 

It is the end of July and we are 126 days into lockdown. In Gauteng, Covid-19 has probably reached its peak as hospitals are full and the infections are on the increase. The same seems to be the case in KZN and the Eastern Cape, while the Western Cape has fewer new infections which might indicate that the worst is over in that province.

 

In spite of the extended lockdown, we should remain vigilant. The spread of the Corona virus is still uncertain as it appears without warning. The disease can be very serious with devastating complications. RSA’s death toll is relatively low compared to other countries, but many people are getting seriously ill. Keep in mind that those that die of the Coronavirus, suffocate. It is a terrible way to die. Please do not make light of this disease.  

Teen die einde van Julie 2020 is ons 126 dae diep in die grendeltydperk. In Gauteng is Covid-19 waarskynlik nou by `n piek met vol hospitale en infeksies wat baie vinnig toeneem. Dieselfde blyk ook die geval te wees in KZN en die Oos-Kaap, terwyl in die Wes-Kaap daar duidelik nou minder infeksies voorkom en die ergste van die siekte daar hopelik verby is.

 

Ten spyte van hierdie langdurige grendeltyd moet ons steeds versigtig bly. Die verspreiding van die Coronavirus bly onseker en dit verskyn soos “’n dief in die nag”. Die siekte kan ook baie erger gevolge en komplikasies hê as wat sommige van ons verwag. RSA se sterftetalle is laag gemeet teenoor die res van die wêreld maar daar is heelwat mense wat baie erger siek raak as wat verwag is. Hou ook in gedagte dat mense wat sterf weens, of met Coronavirus eintlik maar versmoor. Dit is `n baie slegte manier om aan jou einde te kom. Moet asseblief nie die siekte ligtelik afmaak nie.
