Speak up to save lives and jobs

COVID-19 infections are rising fast and we’re asking you to speak up to save lives and jobs.

We will send Covid19EconomicIdeas.org subscribers regular messages promoting Covid-19 health protocol compliance. There are five simple behaviours – wearing a mask properly, physical distancing, avoiding indoor events, using CovidAlert, and regular disinfection. We need a nation of champions driving these simple behaviours to protecting us from the virus.

Please share the message of the day to activate your work, social and community networks via email, social media, whatsapp or other preferred channels.

This is a partnership of the Millennium Labour Council and the Covid-19 Economists Group.

Anyone can sign up to receive these messages by subscribing to the www.Covid19economicideas.org site.

Message of the day

It is human to want to socialise. But it is inhuman to put loved ones at risk.

It is human to want to socialise, especially at this time of year. So says President Ramaphosa in his Dec 28th address. But this socialising has led to super-spreading events like the one in this video.

Speak Up to avoid such gatherings. It is illegal. And these party-goers put their loved ones’ lives and livelihoods at risk, plus all the other people they happen to come across.

Watch this video from Eusebius Mckaiser who we thank for posting!

The Millenium Labour Council is a forum of Business and Labour leaders, established in 2000, to explore innovative solutions at a bilateral level, designed to allow parties to explore options, and to build consensus. Speak Up is the result of its recent deliberations on how to respond to a Covid-19 Second Wave.
