Is Smoking A Protective Factor Against COVID-19?

28 May 2020 7:33 AM

Cigarette smoking is known to be conducive to a plethora of respiratory conditions, cancers and other diseases. To this effect, as COVID-19 started spreading, health authorities naturally assumed that smokers were at a higher risk of contracting the virus, and that if they did, they would exhibit harsher symptoms than the majority. However new research has emerged to show that this may not be the case.

A recent study conducted in a large French university hospital, between March and April, aimed to determine the possible correlation of daily smoking, with the susceptibility of contracting the SARS-CoV-2 infection.

The compiled data indicated that the daily smokers rate amongst COVID-19 patients was at 5.3%, whilst amongst the French population, the daily smokers rate was at 25.4%. These findings led the researchers to conclude that daily smokers have a significantly lower probability of developing symptomatic or a severe SARS-CoV-2 infection, when compared to the general population.

Bongani joined by Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos, renowned cardiologist, and anti-smoking researcher.

Former SAA Board Chair Dudu Myeni declared a delinquent director

28 May 2020 7:23 AM

Former South African Airways (SAA) chair Dudu Myeni has been declared a delinquent director in terms of the Companies Act. Myeni was appointed as non-executive director of the board of SAA in September 2009, became acting chair in December 2012 and chair in September 2016 until 2017. She was a member of the accounting authority of SAA, among other things. The North Gauteng High Court declared her a delinquent director for life; however, she can apply in three years from the date of the order to have the declaration of delinquency to be suspended, but she would have to demonstrate that she has "sufficiently remedied and rehabilitated her misconduct". The application was brought by the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) and the SAA Pilots Association (SAAPA).

Some mining companies not protecting workers from covid-19

28 May 2020 7:01 AM

Bongani speaks to Dr Katlego Mothudi, Managing Director of BHF


Board of Healthcare Funders lobby for resources for doctors in private practice operating in townships and rural and remote areas during pandemic. Many doctors in private practice, in townships, informal settlements, remote and rural areas; and several non-profit organisations are doing a lot of work in supporting government efforts to minimise the burden of Covid-19 on the public healthcare system.

However, they face many risks given the shortage of N-95 protective masks, 3-tier lower cost masks for selected patients, scrub suits, hand sanitisers, disinfectant, and related equipment amongst other things
