SPEAKER NONTEMBEKO BOYCE SHOWERS HEALTHCARE WORKERS WITH PRAISE FOR THEIR UNSELFISH FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19 AS THE WORLD CELEBRATES THE WORLD HEALTH DAY
In her message on the World Health Day, KwaZulu-Natal Legislature Speaker, Ms Nontembeko Boyce has thanked the healthcare workers for their selfless commitment in the fight against the COVID-19 that has claimed thousands of lives all over the world.
“Today the world observes the World Health Day at a time when the whole world is facing a health crisis caused by the deadly pandemic COVID-19. The efforts put by the healthcare workers in looking after those who have contracted the virus and preventing it from spreading, are immeasurable. Their work does not go unnoticed and let us all rally behind them. We can help our healthcare workers by following health guidelines” said Boyce.
The Speaker also commended the South African government for the manner it has coordinated efforts to contain the spread of the virus, adding that it would have spread faster that it has were it not of the well-coordinated interventions but further calls for provisioning of PPEs and all necessary support by government to all healthcare workers during this difficult time of sacrificing their own beings in order to save South Africa.
“The message that South Africans are getting from the government is clear, logical and it unites people to fight against the common enemy. Our legislature will continue to provide oversight and support to the provincial government as it continues to undertake this important role of protecting our people” said Boyce.
