Wow 2020, wow!!! All we can say is “wow”. We were all excited that we have come full circle into a new decade, but this decade had quite a surprise for the entire universe. We were introduced to a new deadly virus, COVID-19. We had to show some emotional agility and soldier on. We went into protection mode, we masked up, we sanitised, we washed our hands, we educated!!!

It is unfortunate that this deadly virus has come to disrupt our plans and progress as a healthcare provider. This was caused by numerous factors, such as the lockdown, the travel ban, to mention a few. This virus is unpleasant, but we must remember we all have a responsibility to protect, educate and guide. 

But 2021 comes with increased hope – vaccines have already been found and proven, and we hope they will be available in Namibia shortly. Let us continue to be hopeful, positive and continue living. Let us fill our calendars with things to do…

We have a lot to do and we are very hopeful looking forwards in this new year.
