Firstly we hope that you and your families are all healthy, safe and self-isolating as we try to navigate our way through these incredibly testing times.
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has brought our country to a stand- still and we are aware that our readers may not be in a position to get their weekly Soccer Laduma copy over the next three weeks.
An article released by Earl J. Wilkinson, CEO of INMA (The International News Media Associ- ation) states that zero incidents of COVID-19 transmission from print surfaces including newspaper, print magazine, print letter or print package have been recorded according to the world’s top doctors and scientists.
However, the entire Media24 group is currently in deliberation as to the way forward, and you can be rest assured that the only factor being taken into account with regards to publishing and distributing for the next three weeks is your safety.
How to get your Soccer Laduma next week!
We at Soccer Laduma do understand that even if your newspaper does hit the news stands for the next three weeks, your circumstances may be such that you are not able to get the paper where you usually would purchase it at places close to your work or on routes that you take when you commute to and from work or study.
We also know that being in isolation, you are going to need some great reading material! As such we would like to direct you online to:
1. Type into your web browser on mobile or desktop, or click on the link: https://www.magzter.com/ ZA/Media24/Soccer-Laduma/Sports/ All-Issues
2. Create an account on Magzter by supplying your name, your email address and create a password.
