Over the last few weeks, Medical Practitioners and Healthcare Workers around the globe have been sharing posts of themselves urging people to stay at home. 

A group of South African medical practitioners decided to spread a positive message in one of the 11 official languages, Afrikaans.

The message reads:

'Stay home. Wash your hands and glasses. Don't sleep with your contact lenses, let's flatten the curve together.'

The original post was done by 16 medical practitioners in English and Zulu and was posted by OB Malope, Managing Director of Visionstryt on LinkedIn and Instagram.
