China Overseas Chinese Network, April 16. According to the website of the Chinese Embassy in South Africa, with the gradual improvement of the epidemic situation in South Africa, the economic and social activities in various regions have become more active, but the security situation in some areas is still not optimistic.

Violent activities against some foreigners in some communities have increased, and natural disasters such as heavy rains and floods have occurred frequently in some places, posing a certain threat to the personal and property safety of Chinese citizens in South China, which deserves great attention.

As Easter and other local holidays are approaching, the Chinese Embassy in South Africa would like to remind overseas Chinese and institutions in South Africa:

  1. Pay attention to preventing criminal activities such as robbery and kidnapping.

Pay attention to the local security situation, and try to avoid traveling at night or going to remote and poor security areas.

The operators of supermarkets and factories should pay attention to strengthening security forces, check the video surveillance system and anti-theft and anti-riot facilities in advance to ensure normal operation.

Strengthen daily contact with local police, local police-civilian centers and community police-civilian forums, and seek help in a timely manner.

  2. Be vigilant about xenophobic activities.

Pay close attention to the activities of relevant xenophobic organizations, do not participate in discussions and campaign activities on social media, do not make radical remarks, and stay away from demonstrations.

Overseas Chinese and institutions in relevant areas should strengthen information communication. In case of demonstrations, it is recommended to close their homes and stores in advance to avoid danger.

  3. Pay attention to preventing natural disasters.

Pay close attention to the local weather conditions, do the daily maintenance of the house in advance, and purchase the necessary property insurance.

Strengthen emergency reserves, and purchase a certain amount of living materials and disaster relief materials when necessary to prepare for emergencies.

  Fourth, continue to do a good job in epidemic prevention.

The epidemic has not been completely eliminated, and Nan experts predict that there may still be a recurrence.

It is necessary to persevere in personal protection. Those who have not been vaccinated or need a booster shot are recommended to be vaccinated as soon as possible to effectively maintain the health and safety of themselves and their families.
