North West doctor tests positive for COVID-19


Deputy Health Minister Joe Phaahla says he’s satisfied with the steps taken in the North West to deal with the case of a doctor who tested positive for COVID-19. At least 56 patients and 44 healthcare workers were in contact with the Klerksdorp doctor, and some are now under quarantine. Provincial health officials are trying to trace six patients who had contact with the doctor.

“Necessary steps are being taken in terms of making sure that all the 44 staff members are in isolation or self-quarantined, those who have facilities, those who don’t have facilities are being looked after the state,” Phaahla said.
