Covid19 Screening at Tshehlwaneng area

27/02/2021/Mmabore Mogashoa/Limpopo/Sekhukhune, Ga-Mogashoa

I went to the shops on 26 February 2021 and there were people under 2 gazebos next to the main road to Janefurse. They were calling the people that are passing so that they can do Covid19 screening. I went there and I spoke to Elvis who was part of

the screening team. He also told me that they test HIV, TB, Diabetes, other chronic illnesses screening and mobilizing women. According to Elvis more people don’t go for screening and their foundation saw an opportunity to do Covid19 screening for free. People got free face masks and sanitizers. Some of the questions  asked where about signs and symptoms of Covid19: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle pain, loss of taste or smell and if one have been in contact with people with Covid19 or travelled. This screening is good as some people might have but not be aware that is Covid19 symptoms. Their organisation works in Limpopo Province but the screening is done in Sekhukhune District. He can be contacted on 0792650092 for more information.
