Health department rolls out Covid-19 screenings

Areas and wards are selected based on the declaration of hotspot or high-risk areas by the KZN Health Department.

THE south-Durban basin has not been included in the areas selected for community screenings for Covid-19 by the provincial government which was recently announced.

Areas and wards are selected based on the declaration of hotspot or high-risk areas by the KZN Health Department. Screenings will be done through a questionnaire to establish whether a person exhibits coronavirus symptoms. Those who meet the case definition will then be subjected to testing for the virus.

Residents will be able to identify healthcare officials by their reflector vests with proper identification details. No details have been provided by health officials as to when or if mass screening will be conducted within the south-Durban basin.
