China News Service, June 11 (Xinhua) According to the website of the Chinese Consulate General in Johannesburg, since June, the Chinese Consulate General in Johannesburg has continuously received multiple diagnosed reports of Chinese citizens infected with New Coronary Pneumonia in Johannesburg. Early symptoms such as fever, cough, and general malaise have been contacted by doctors or sent to hospital for treatment. At the same time, close contact with relevant personnel is also under investigation, and measures such as self-isolation and medical observation have been taken.

  The Consulate General in Johannesburg reminded Chinese citizens of the consular district that South Africa is currently the country with the worst epidemic in Africa. Although the South African government has lowered the level of the ban, the epidemic inflection point has not arrived. As of June 10, the total number of confirmed cases in South Africa is close to 5.3 The death toll exceeded 1,000, and the epidemic is still spreading. I sincerely call on Chinese citizens in the territories to remember to put their health and safety at the top of the list. Don’t take it lightly because of local bans and downgrades, and do a good job of personal protection. The Chinese malls and merchants that have resumed foreign business must implement all anti-epidemic measures. Falling down, because the virus is in front of you, the danger is by your side.

  1. Wash hands frequently in daily life, wear masks when going out, and always keep a social distance of more than 2 meters with people.

  2. All overseas Chinese delegations in the consular district should strengthen their anti-epidemic propaganda and remind their members to continue to take good precautions. Chinese citizens working in Chinatown and Chinese malls, which are densely populated and highly mobile, must strictly abide by the anti-epidemic requirements. The business premises should be ventilated and disinfected frequently. Every day, carefully implement measures such as checking body temperature, wearing a mask, disinfection and killing, time-limiting and current-limiting to avoid the risk of cross-infection.

  3. Chinese citizens who feel unwell or have suspected symptoms shall immediately stop working and going out, conduct home isolation, and consult a doctor or go to a relevant institution for testing in a timely manner.

  4. Please respect and protect the personal privacy of suspected or diagnosed compatriots, do not discriminate against diagnosed compatriots, do not spread negative information on social media such as WeChat group and circle of friends, and do not spread panic among overseas Chinese.

  Judging from the current situation, the resumption of production and the production of borders will become the new normal. Please let our compatriots continue to pay close attention to the changes in the local epidemic situation, pay attention to the notices and reminders of the Chinese embassy and consulate in South Africa, and protect their health and safety. If you are diagnosed or encounter other difficulties, you can contact the Consulate General for help in a timely manner (Telephone assistance number 0027-715111494).
