A Covid-19 Update on safety and sustainability as applied to our specialty May 13, 2020

The development and fast spread of the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, has totally changed the world and particularly the face of medical care – at least for the foreseeable future. Protocols to manage the disease and its results are being developed, circulated widely, discussed and changed with the evolution of the epidemic. SASOG provided initial guidance to members during the early days of the crisis in South Africa and GMG continues to release a weekly newsletter.

As we end the extended phase 5 of lockdown and move into a less restrictive environment, we provide an update on safety and sustainability as applied to our specialty. This is especially relevant in view of the projected extended local epidemic, and its effects and anticipated effects on all our members and our field of work.
