Motsepe, Ms CCS to ask the Minister of Health

What are the reasons that his department continues to prohibit hospital visits by families of those who are admitted to hospitals, noting that the Republic is now on Alert Level 1 lockdown?


The Department of Health is taking serious precautionary measures by prohibiting hospital visits by the families of the patients that are admitted within the facilities because the threat of Covid-19 virus is still real. While the country in alert level 1, we remain concerned about the possible increase in infections especially because there are still a number of cases on infections that are reported through our laboratories, although very low.
