Parent24 has produced a podcast series Ask a Doctor, where we talk to medical professionals about the various issues that affect our kids, and our families.  

We asked Dr Carol Bosch, a Cape Town based GP, to provide tips and advice to keep your family healthy while locked in. 

She touches on how to manage common ailments at home and how to help medical teams as they face Covid-19, shares solutions (see below) and more.
