How do you know if you need antibiotics?
Common infections that require antibiotics are;
• Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
• Strep throat
• Bacterial tonsillitis
• Pneumonia
• Whooping cough

Antibiotics aren’t always the answer when you’re sick. In the case of influenza, for example, antibiotics will not make you feel better. Help fight #AntibioticResistance by taking antibiotics only when needed. #WAAW2022 #SpreadAwarenessStopResistance #WorldAntibioticAwarenessWeek
 
#WorldAntibioticAwarenessWeek starts today (Nov 18-24), and it aims to increase awareness of global antibiotic resistance -the more antibiotics we use, the more resistance develops! Read more here buff.ly/3OjfnkX #WAAW2022

Hi there, for adults > 50 years, it is recommended that the PCV13 be administered, while adults > 65 years who are pneumococcal vaccine naïve should receive the PCV13 followed by pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV23) one year later. In addition, younger adults (> 18 years)
with underlying chronic conditions or immunocompromising conditions (including HIV) should receive the PCV13 followed 2 months later by PPV23. ^KM

#PneumoniaSymptoms can be mild to life-threatening. The signs and symptoms of pneumonia may include:

- A persistent high fever
- A cough that won’t go away
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Sweating and chills
#WorldPneumoniaDay2022
 
Today we commemorate #WorldPneumoniaDay2022
Together, we can prevent pneumonia by
💉 Getting the flu vaccine, pneumococcal vaccine and the #COVID19Vaccine
🧼 Practicing good hand hygiene and cough etiquette
🛌 Staying away from high-risk individuals when you are sick
 
If a healthcare provider prescribes antibiotics to treat #pneumonia, follow the instructions properly and take the full recommended dose, even if you or your child seem to be getting better. #WorldPneumoniaDay2022
 
The first line of defence against pneumonia is to get vaccinated. Ask a healthcare provider about the pneumococcal vaccine, which can help protect against bacterial pneumonia. Be sure to also get the annual flu shot and to be vaccinated against COVID-19. #WorldPneumoniaDay2022
 
Most of the malaria cases reported in Gauteng (GP) are due to infections acquired outside the borders of Gauteng. To address this, the GP DOH has established travel clinics where the public can get the recommended malaria chemoprophylactics

Myth: You can get #pneumonia if you don’t wear a coat outside when it’s cold

Truth: Pneumonia is caused by infection with a bacteria or virus. When you are cold, your body may possibly be less able to fight off infection, but the weather is not a direct cause of pneumonia.
 
Anyone can get #pneumonia, but young children are one of the groups of individuals that are at higher risk. The below sign and symptoms of pneumonia help you know when to visit your nearest healthcare facility
#WorldPneumoniaDay2022
 
Prevention is better than cure! It is important to manage your malaria risk when traveling to high-risk areas. Malaria is endemic in certain areas of South Africa, namely parts of KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and Limpopo.
#PreventMalaria #SADCMalariaWeek2022
 
Myth: #Pneumonia only affects older individuals.

Truth: Pneumonia can affect people of any age, however, people over the age of 65 years, infants and young children, and individuals with co-morbidities are at high risk for getting pneumonia. #WorldPneumoniaDay2022
 
If you have a cough that won’t go away, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chest pain, or a persistent high fever, don’t assume that it’s just the common cold or flu. You should see a healthcare worker to confirm the cause of your illness. #WorldPneumoniaDay2022
 
Malaria is a significant cause of fever and severe illness in returned travellers. If you are travelling, you can note the below tips to help you prevent and possibly manage malaria before, during and after your trip.

#PreventMalaria #SADCMalariaWeek2022
 
Myth: #Pneumonia is just a bad cold
Truth: The common cold normally resolves on its own with rest and fluids, and typically does not require urgent medical care. Pneumonia is an infection in the lungs and is more serious and requires urgent treatment. #WorldPneumoniaDay2022

Thanks @Rajeev_The_King - Any updates on the covid situation? I feel lost in this wave, since we don’t have daily reports from the @nicd_sa , but mostly because of low numbers testing and unreliable positivity rate.
