Overcrowding is being blamed for the deaths of ten infants at Tembisa Hospital. Gauteng Health MEC Bandile Masuku, says the department is also struggling with a shortage of nurses.

Ten babies died during an antibiotic-resistant bacteria outbreak between November and December last year.

Masuku says the bacteria spreads faster when the area is overcrowded.

“It’s a general problem we have in our country and across the province. Because of overcrowding and staff shortage, we face a situation where one nurse would have looked after more than two babies,” said Masuku.
