Curbing the spread of COVID

Bryte is encouraged by the sustained decrease in infection rates, the momentum the country’s vaccination programme continues to gain and the developments which will see South Africa begin the production of COVID-19 vaccines for the continent. We urge the public to unite in the fight against COVID by adhering to all government directives and guidelines, but by also making informed decisions around whether or not to be vaccinated. In these overwhelming circumstances, it is vital that we continue to share only factual information, to avoid unnecessary panic.

The Bryte family wishes to extend its appreciation to all frontline workers and volunteers for their acts of selflessness, courage and commitment in providing vital services to the public, through these disruptive times.
