He adds that his organization is paying attention to KwaZulu-Natal, where infections are increasing and oxygen seems to be scarce.
“In the second wave, it focused more on the Eastern Cape and the Western Cape and is now receiving a large number of calls in the KZN. Our support includes scrubs, non-contact thermometers, high flow oxygen machines and we are introducing a new machine. ”
“It’s for oxygen too. The CSIR has given us thousands of these machines. We started them and they work like a bomb and the doctors absolutely love it. These machines save lives and we are ready to introduce them to the KZN, ”explains Sooliman.
In the meantime, the South African Medical Association (SAMA) would like South Africa to be locked back to Level 2 with special restrictions on gatherings.
