At thy call we shall not falter.

Dr. Janine Brandt (seen here at IESF's 2019 edition of GEES) is but one of the brave medical professionnals in the front line.
Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) commends the actions of all medical staff and volunteers in their fight against COVID-19.

The fight against COVID-19 is without doubt, a war. A war that threatens not on group of people, but all peoples.

Thus the way in which the fight against this new invader must, as being done by the British government, be handled in the same way as any other invasion by any other aggressor.

Because we cannot see this aggressor, the COVID-19 virus must be reated with even  greater care as its attacks within the very core of society and does not discriminate on any basis.

Yet it is the health care professionals and volunteers that face the greatest risks every day as they battle this unseen enemy.

It is therefore the duty of every person to fight the enemy at all times, as the failure to do so by any one person or any group, could lead to utter ruin and disaster.

The principles of war thus remain true for this epic fight in which we find ourselves embroiled, being:
  • Surprise
  • Security
  • Flexibility
  • Manoeuvre
  • Co-operation
  • Offensive action
  • Logistical support
  • Economy of force
  • Unity of command
  • Concentration of Force
  • Maintenance of Reserves
  • The Maintence of Reserves
  • The Maintenance of Morale
  • Selection and Maintenance of Aim.
All South Africans should thus put aside selfish agendas and desires in favour of the greater good to defeat this new enemy.
