SANCDA Host Second Happy Hour Xchange
The South African Non-Communicable Disease Alliance (SANCDA) will hosted the 2nd Happy Hour Xchange on Thursday, 8 April 2021 at 18:00.
Dr Vicki will be Xchanging with Dr Waasila Jassat about COVID-19 in South Africa and NCDs – surfing for survival and surfing the waves, including the 3rd wave expected from the end of April. Dr Waasila is a Public Health Specialist (National Institute for Communicable Diseases – NICD).
In part 2, Dr Murray Dryden and Caroline Mudara from NICD are discussing long COVID-19 in South Africa, including how it differs from chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).
People living with NCDs are at a higher risk of becoming severely ill if they contract COVID-19. NCDs are underlying health conditions that require you to take special care: cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, chronic respiratory diseases, dementia, kidney disease and cancer.
NCDs and other chronic conditions can make the immune system slow down and making it easier to get an infection like COVID-19. So, we want to keep you healthy.
