Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person:
It may be possible that a person can get the virus by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
Your health is our priority. We are providing alcohol-based hand sanitizer for your constant use. We are closely monitoring the international situation, which remains favorable in South Africa.
If during your time at SG2020 you feel at any point unwell, we advise you to self-isolate within your hotel room. You should advise the front desk that you are self-isolating. There is a medical clinic five minutes away from the hotel BUT we advise you to stay in your hotel and call the clinic or have the hotel call the clinic.
