‘When this Covid-19 wave is over, there is going to be a third and fourth wave’

Glenda Gray, president of the Medical Research Council, urged South Africans this week to curb the spread of the new variant of Covid-19, warning that the country will be hit by recurring waves until a vaccine becomes available.

People need gentle encouragement and peer pressure, not brutal policing, to encourage good behaviour to stop transmission. Until we have a vaccine, it is imperative to implement nonpharmaceutical interventions,” she said.

“As long as the virus is circulating, there will be variation … we need to understand that when this wave is over, there is going to be a third and fourth wave.” But, she said, this cycle is in our hands.

These are:

  • Physical distancing, keeping 2m apart;
  • Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth when you are in a public place;
  • Ensuring good ventilation by meeting outdoors and having windows open in buildings and vehicles;
  • Hand washing and sanitising frequently; and
  • Staying at home if you feel sick.
