Coronavirus: South Africa ready to treat at ports of entry

The South African government was “upping its game” with every province ready to treat people showing symptoms of the coronavirus, Health Minister Zweli Mkhize told MPs.

“We can treat any patient who would land in this country at any ports of entry and we have every province ready to treat such people,” Mkhize said while briefing Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Health on Wednesday.

The minister said 13 hospitals have been designated to isolate and treat people with symptoms of the virus.

The department was ensuring the floors and arrival halls of ports of entry were being disinfected and has recommended that all immigration officials wear masks and gloves.
