Follow up about the launching of screening and testing Limpopo people in Lephalale Municipality. Last month Honourable Premier Stan Mathabatha and MEC Phophi Ramathuba of Department of Health launched the mentioned program in Lephalale because is the hotspot of Corona Virus in Waterberg Region and Limpopo. The total number of positive people in Waterberg was 10 and the whole five was from Lephalale Municipality. That’s the reason they have chosen Lephalale.

Today we experienced with a shock that, one of our professional female nurse in Marapong Clinic did tested positive. People can be lucky if they used set regulations when they were busy treated by the nurse. We hope the tracing team will be able to identify whether there was unnoticed spread of the virus or not because the person is a public servant. That will be a new active case in Lephalale. Our Clinic is overflowing almost every day because it’s situated in a very overpopulated location. We wish and pray for negative results.
