Instituting restrictions on alcohol consumption may be needed if South African hospitals are under pressure. That’s the view of Professor Salim Abdool Karim, Chairperson of the Ministerial Advisory Committee on COVID-19.
According to Karim, “the problems of alcohol consumption is that you begin to utilise keys services that are reacquired by COVID-19 patients.
“As soon as you start getting large numbers of COVID-19 patients coming into the emergency room, every patient coming in for non-COVID-19 conditions such as motor vehicle accidents that are alcohol-related, that person is now at risk of acquiring COVID-19. All in all, it poses a problem.
