World Health Day in the era of COVID-19

Today marks World Health Day, which comes at a time when the globe is faced with a public health crisis of unprecedented proportions. COVID-19 is not only claiming tens of thousands of lives, but also testing healthcare systems all over the world, and people's health in general. Interestingly, the emergency is also forcing people to be more cognisant of simple hygiene practices such as regular handwashing to keep them free of disease, while forcing others out of unhealthy habits such as reducing or quitting smoking which makes the more vulnerable. For more on this, Channel Africa's Amanda Matshaka spoke to Racey Muchilwa from the pharmaceutical company Norvatis South Africa.
