GCIS pleads with citizens to keep up the fight against COVID-19

The Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) is ready to spend money to help South Africans keep up the fight against COVID-19 through several outreach channels.

Meanwhile, the Minister said that the budget allocation to the Media Diversity and Development Agency (MDDA) will support work to transform the media industry.

She said the Media Development and Diversity Amendment Bill, 2021, which will review the MDDA Amendment Act, to align it to key technological developments in the sector and good corporate governance practices, has commenced.

“In addition, the MDDA will submit comments on the amendments of the Electronic Communications Act and the SABC Act because the opportunities for advancing media development and diversity will be widened by the digital migration.

Now we are going to look at what covid 19 does to the human body :

COVID19 is more likely to go deeper than viruses like the common cold. Your lungs might become inflamed, making it tough for you to breathe. This can lead to pneumonia, an infection of the tiny air sacs (called alveoli) inside your lungs where your blood exchanges oxygen and carbon dioxide.

If your doctor does a CT scan of your chest, they’ll probably see shadows or patchy areas called “ground-glass opacity.”

For most people, the symptoms end with a cough and a fever. More than 8 in 10 cases are mild. But for some, the infection gets more severe. About 5 to 8 days after symptoms begin, they have shortness of breath (known as dyspnea). Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) begins a few days later.

ARDS can cause rapid breathing, a fast heart rate, dizziness, and sweating. It damages the tissues and blood vessels in your alveoli, causing debris to collect inside them. This makes it harder or even impossible for you to breathe.

Many people who get ARDS need help breathing from a machine called a ventilator.

As fluid collects in your lungs, they carry less oxygen to your blood. That means your blood may not supply your organs with enough oxygen to survive. This can cause your kidneys, lungs, and liver to shut down and stop working.

Some people also have symptoms including:

Pinkeye
Rashes
Liver problems or damage
Heart problems
Kidney damage
Dangerous blood clots, including in their legs, lungs, and arteries. Some clots may cause a stroke.
Researchers are looking into reports of mouth sores and skin rashes, including reddish-purple spots on fingers or toes.

In general, children don’t get as sick with coronavirus as adults do, but they can be infected and it can also be deadly for them. Some children and teens have been admitted to the hospital with an inflammatory syndrome that may be linked to the new coronavirus. Symptoms include a fever, rash, belly pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and heart problems. The syndrome, now being referred to as multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, or MIS-C is similar to toxic shock or to Kawasaki disease, a condition in children that causes inflammation in blood vessels. We’re still learning about these cases.

The long term effects of COVID-19 on your body are still unclear. Some patients have become what is being called “long-haulers” where they suffer symptoms for weeks and even months.

Acting Minister in the Presidency, Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, said this when she tabled the department’s budget vote to a mini plenary of the National Assembly on Friday.

“To mobilise South Africans to continue the fight against COVID-19, through this budget, GCIS will continue to implement its outreach programmes designed to reach people where they work or reside. This will include at taxi ranks, mall activations, panel discussions on local community media and commercial radio and TV stations,” she said.

The Minister said despite the devastation left by the global COVID-19 pandemic, which has left hunger, job losses and death in its wake, the responsibility of government is to continue to work to restore hope.

She said for the period ahead, GCIS is tasked with carrying out its mandate in four priority areas – mobilising South Africans to continue the fight against COVID-19; providing information about the economic recovery plan; mobilising South Africans in the fight against corruption, and maintaining continuous dialogue in the fight against gender-based violence and femicide.

“I must concede that getting messages across to people has been a mammoth task, but that GCIS has embraced and made considerable gains in this front through a combination of old-style outreach activations, and coupled with a massive presence in the digital age of government – websites, social media and other messaging platforms such as WhatsApp and webinars.

“Our communications approach was based on a need to inspire behaviour change and instill hope.”

As the country is faced with a likelihood of a third wave, Ntshavheni called on South Africans not to drop their guard, and to continue to observe COVID-19 protocols.

“South Africans in their numbers have continued to adhere to the call to wear masks in the public and to observe social distancing and to wash their hands with soap and water or [use] 70% alcohol-based sanitiser. And we call on South Africans to continue to adhere to these critical, non-pharmaceutical health protocols.”
