Launch: Phase Two Vaccination 16 May 2021

It gives us great pleasure as the National Health Council to give details to the public about the mass vaccination campaign that will kick off tomorrow.

 

We know that everyone has been very anxious to know what will happen tomorrow and how we will start to vaccinate our most vulnerable citizens and then move onto vaccinating the general population- I am happy the MECโ€™s have joined me here today because they will each detail the provincial plans in a moment.

 

The Sisonke Programme has now ended and has vaccinated a total of 478 733 South Africans. The Programme received a total of 500 000 doses.These doses will not be used for phase two or phase three, but will be used by the Medical research Council to conduct important studies and programmes that will help us to understand how the vaccines work for population groups such as persons living with HIV and other co-morbidities, elite athletes, pregnant and lactating women and other special groups.

Gebruik van alternatiewe medikasie vir behandeling van COVID 19

Ivomec

Libra Apteek wil graag pasiente en kliente waarsku teen die gebruik van Ivermectin en soortgelyke middels as alternatiewe behandeling teen die Covid

19 Virus.

Die middel is nie goedgekeur en klinies getoets en geregistreer deur die Medisynebeheerraad (SA HEALTH PRODUCTS REGULATORY AUTHORITY) van Suid Afrika nie, en ons by Libra Apteek sal dit nie aan enige pasient aanbeveel nie.

Wees versigtig om raad wat deur leke en ongekwalifiseerde individue op sosiale media versprei word, as oplossings vir die krisis te aanvaar.

Wees assebliefย  ook versigtig om enige menings op sosiale media te plaas,of te "share" voordat dit wetenskaplik bewys is dat dit wel effektief, veilig, en sonder langtermyn skadelike effekte is nie.

Jy kan verantwoordelik gehou word vir uitsprake wat jy op sosiale media maak. Jy kan verantwoordelik gehou word vir langtermyn skade wat moontlik deur die middel veroorsaak kan word, sou die gebruik daarvan in reaksie tot jou "post" bewys kan word.

 

Daar mag moontlik iets in die middel wees wat kan bydra tot die bekamping van die pandemie maar dit is nog glad nie bewys dat dit so is nie.

Wees asseblief versigtig en laat beproefde wetenskaplikeย  navorsing ons lei

Feeling confused as to why Corona virus is a bigger deal than Seasonal flu?

This is from an immunologist at Johns Hopkins University:

Feeling confused as to why Coronavirus is a bigger deal than Seasonal flu? Here it is in a nutshell. I hope this helps. Feel free to share this to others who donโ€™t understand...

It has to do with RNA sequencing.... I.e. genetics.
Seasonal flu is an โ€œall human virusโ€. The DNA/RNA chains that make up the virus are recognized by the human immune system. This means that your body has some immunity to it before it comes around each year... you get immunity two ways...through exposure to a virus, or by getting a flu shot.

Novel viruses, come from animals.... the WHO tracks novel viruses in animals, (sometimes for years watching for mutations). Usually these viruses only transfer from animal to animal (pigs in the case of H1N1) (birds in the case of the Spanish flu). But once, one of these animal viruses mutates, and starts to transfer from animals to humans... then itโ€™s a problem, Why? Because we have no natural or acquired immunity.. the RNA sequencing of the genes inside the virus isnโ€™t human, and the human immune system doesnโ€™t recognize it so, we canโ€™t fight it off.

Now.... sometimes, the mutation only allows transfer from animal to human, for years itโ€™s only transmission is from an infected animal to a human before it finally mutates so that it can now transfer human to human... once that happens..we have a new contagion phase. And depending on the fashion of this new mutation, thats what decides how contagious, or how deadly itโ€™s gonna be..

H1N1 was deadly....but it did not mutate in a way that was as deadly as the Spanish flu. Itโ€™s RNA was slower to mutate and it attacked its host differently, too.
Fast forward.

Now, here comes this Coronavirus... it existed in animals only, for nobody knows how long...but one day, at an animal market, in Wuhan China, in December 2019, it mutated and made the jump from animal to people. At first, only animals could give it to a person... But here is the scary part.... in just TWO WEEKS it mutated again and gained the ability to jump from human to human. Scientists call this quick ability, โ€œslipperyโ€

This Coronavirus, not being in any form a โ€œhumanโ€ virus (whereas we would all have some natural or acquired immunity). Took off like a rocket. And this was because, Humans have no known immunity...doctors have no known medicines for it.
And it just so happens that this particular mutated animal virus, changed itself in such a way the way that it causes great damage to human lungs..

Thatโ€™s why Coronavirus is different from seasonal flu, or H1N1 or any other type of influenza.... this one is slippery AF. And itโ€™s a lung eater...And, itโ€™s already mutated AGAIN, so that we now have two strains to deal with, strain s, and strain L....which makes it twice as hard to develop a vaccine.

We really have no tools in our shed, with this. History has shown that fast and immediate closings of public places has helped in the past pandemics. Philadelphia and Baltimore were reluctant to close events in 1918 and they were the hardest hit in the US during the Spanish Flu.

Factoid: Henry VIII stayed in his room and allowed no one near him, till the Black Plague passed...(honestly...I understand him so much better now). Just like us, he had no tools in his shed, except social isolation...
And let me end by saying....right now itโ€™s hitting older folks harder... but this genome is so slippery...if it mutates again (and it will).

Who is to say, what it will do next.

Be smart folks... acting like youโ€™re unafraid is so not sexy right now.

#flattenthecurve. Stay home folks... and share this to those that just are not catching on.

URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS/ URIENWEGINFEKSIES

WAT IS 'N URIENWEGINFEKSIE?/WHAT IS AN URINARY TRACT INFECTION?

Normaalweg is die uriene van 'n persoon steriel en bevat geen bakterie,virusse of swamme nie. Die uriene bestaan net uit 'n samestelling van water, soute en afvalstowwe.

'n Urienweginfeksie word veroorsaak wanneer klein organismes, gewoonlik bakteriee vanaf die verteringstelsel, aan die uretra gaan heg en dan begin vermeerder.

Die uretra is die deel wat uriene vanaf die blaas na buite vervoer. Ongeveer 90% van alle urienweginfeksies word veroorsaak deur 'n bakterie wat in die kolon voorkom, naamlik E.coli.

Sommige mense is meer geneig om urienweginfeksies te kry as ander, veral as die blaas nie elke keer heel leeg gemaak word wanneer uriene gepaseer word nie.

Die volgende persone is meer geneig tot urienweginfeksie:

  • Diabete as gevolg van 'n verandering inย hulleย immuunstelsels en persone met enige afwyking waar die immuunstelsel onderdruk word.
  • Persone met kateters of buise in die uretra of blaasย of wanneer daar 'n niersteen is wat die vloei van uriene kan beinvloed.
  • Mans met 'n vergrote prostaatklier (kom meer by ouer mans voor).
  • Vrouens is ook meer geneig om urienweginfeksies te kry as mans, as gevolg van die lengte van hulle ureter. Vroue se ureter is baie korter as mans s'n.
  • Die feit dat vrouens ook sit wanneer hulle uriene paseer en mans staan, verhoog die kanse om urienweginfeksie te kry.
  • Vrouens het 'n 20% kans omย weer urienweginfeksie te kry, wanneer hulle dit al voorheen gehad het.

Urienweginfeksie by swanger vrouens kan versprei na die niere watย baie gevaarlik kan wees, dus doen dokters gereelde urientoetse tydens swangerskap om te voorkom dat dit gebeur.

SYMPTOMS OF AN URINARY TRACT INFECTION/SIMPTOME VAN 'N URIENWEGINFEKSIE

Did you know thatย not everyone with an urinary tract infections has symtoms?

Here is the most common symptoms when having an UTI (urinary tract infection):

  • An urge to urinate frequently.
  • A burning and painful feeling in the bladder or urethra during urination.
  • Pain, even when not urinating.
  • Women often experience an uncomfortable pressure above the pubic bone.
  • Passing small amounts of urine when having a huge urge to urinate.
  • Milky or cloudy urine.
  • When you start getting fever, it is an indication that the infection has spread to the kidneys.
  • Kidney infection presents back pain, nausea causing vomiting and pain below the ribs.

To diagnose a UTI, the doctor needs toย take a midstream urine sample. The testing can be done in the doctor's room or otherwise send to the lab for testing.

BEHANDELING EN VOORKOMING VAN URIENWEGINFEKSIE/ TREATMENT AND PREVENSION FOR AN URINARY TRACT INFECTION

Urienweginfeksies word behandel met antibakteriele medikasie(antibiotika). Die medikasie en tydperk van behandeling hang van die persoon se geskiedenis en wat die uitslae van die urientoets was( watter bakterie in die uriene is).

Dit is baie belangrik dat die pasient die hele kursus antibiotika voltooi en opdrink, al het die simptome al verdwyn voordat al die medikasie op is aangesien die staking van die medikasie tot weerstandigheid kan lei.

Om urienweginfeksie te voorkom:

  • Drink elke dag genoeg water (ten minste 8 glase)
  • Moenie knyp nie, gaan dadelik toilet toe en moenie wag tot dit te laat is nie.
  • Wanneer vrouens die toilet gebruik, onthou om altyd van voor na agter te vee met die toiletpapier.
  • Stort eerder as om te bad
  • Moenie gegeurde seep en spuitgoed of gekleurde toiletpapier gebruik nie

Dit is nie altyd moontlik om 'n urienweginfeksie te vermy nie, maar begin met behandeling sodra die eerste simptome voorkom. Dit kan die behandelingstydperk korter maak en dan sal die infeksie vinniger opklaar.
