I really appreciate the efforts of Traditional Leaders, Government and People trying to fight, heal and manage to live with Covid 19. Even though some believe that Covid is a scam and others believe it’s real. Arguing about being real or fake doesn’t help poor communities down here because some are frustrated and need help. Those who says it’s a scam must also be advised to obey Covid 19 Regulations and those who believe that it’s real they must share the experience of being Covid 19 Positive with others.

Bench Mark Foundation Activists/Monitors were reporting about they concerns about Covid 19 protection in mining industries all over the world and we saw the team led by MEC of Department of Health and Minister of DMRE visiting Exxaro Coal Mine known as Grootgeluk Mine in Lephalale Municipality yesterday. The motive behind is that the reports shows that the Positive Numbers are arising in the Mine and is the results of giving Activists on the ground deaf ears ?

My concerns as a person are…

✓ There is any clear research that tells the importance of getting Covid 19 Vaccination?
✓ There is any reports that shows the deaths after vaccinating people with Covid 19 vaccine?
✓ The side effects of Covid 19 Vaccine?

As a person I expected such reports to open and clear to the public so that we can be able to know the truth. My father went get the vaccine last week and after the vaccination he was weak and feeling painful the whole body for almost consecutive ( 4 )four days and that frustrated me as a person and my family.

I will we can get proper reports from Government.

Let’s normalise Steaming atleast 3 times a week and follow Covid 19 Regulations.
