‘SA has no capacity to treat C-19 patients from neigbhouring countries’
Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi said SA’s health system simply doesn't have the capacity to treat people from neighbouring countries for C-19 reported EyeWitness News (5 January 2021).
Motsoaledi said many hospitals are battling to cope under the strain of the second surge in coronavirus infections, which is largely driven by a second variant.
‘South Africa’s virus death toll has now breached the 30,000 mark, with over 430 fatalities recorded over the past 24 hours. The country also picked up another 12,600 infections. Motsoaledi said only those who can prove they don't have COVID-19 are being allowed to cross the borders.
