South Africa: Eastern Cape Hospitals in Crisis As Health Workers Stay Away

[Daily Maverick] A doctor had to drive a critically ill patient to hospital himself as several healthcare workers are refusing to work or treat Covid-19 patients in the Eastern Cape. The health department has confirmed that many are refusing to work . The problem is made worse by more than 6,000 vacancies that existed in the province before the pandemic began. And R30-billion in legal claims against the department have eaten away at the budget for new appointments.
