OPINION: The Fifth Wave of Covid 19 is coming, Here's how to prepare

While many people were scared of the fourth wave of Covid 19, it didn't cause much of an impact on South Africa, with no major lockdown or restrictions happening. However now the health department is warning that a fifth wave is definitely coming. So South Africans may have to prepare again. Here's how you can do that.

The Fifth Wave :

Eve though the fifth wave is coming, experts believe that it may not be very severe, regardless, there is a chance that people can still die, so preparation is essential.

Start by stocking up on masks, which you should always wear when you are in the company of other people. Another essential item is hand sanitizer. Many people are letting there guard down and associating with strangers in taxis and malls without protection, however any of these people can be infected and it's very easy for them to pass the infection onto you.

While there is no guarantee another lockdown will happen, the first lockdown was unexpected, so you should always be prepared. Save any extra money you have in the bank or in a jar and keep non perishable items stocked in your cupboards for emergencies.

Your home should be a safe haven from the virus, so always sanitize any products or items coming in, when people enter make sure to sanitize there hands and shoes. You may want to also take a shower after coming from crowded places, events or from church.

Remember that people are still dying from the virus and we can see this in the daily statistics, so for now it's important to not let our guard down.
