Some time ago, our indefatigable minister of health, Zweli Mkize, posted a video on his Twitter timeline which had general practitioner Dr Marlin McCay giving advice on how to take care of yourself if you have tested positive for Covid-19.

We loved the idea, but also thought that it would be wonderful if similar videos could be made by women experts in the field. We chatted to Dr Shakira Choonara, public health consultant and member of our database, and were blown away when she volunteered to make some Women’s Month videos for us.

The first one was aired on Twitter on August 3, followed by several from Dr Choonara, and two from Dr Sam Pattterson. They are all listed below, in the order in which they appeared.
