Doctors seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases in Joburg
A group of about 200 doctors, in collaboration with #VoicesThatCare Facebook campaign, has seen a surge in COVID-19 cases since we have been in Level 2. We speak to Dr Karin van der Merwe to find out what is going on.
I hope it is not the beginning of a second wave but the numbers in our area are creeping in. Now is not the time to drop our guard. There has been a spread of COVID-19 between family members and friends and I think social gatherings are behind this. It's especially important for the elderly and vulnerable to maintain their distance.Dr Karin van der Merwe, General practitioner
