Gauteng’s Duduza Clinic to reopen after Covid-19 deep clean

The Duduza Clinic in Ekurhuleni, Gauteng, will reopen on Wednesday after a deep clean sparked by a resident nurse testing positive for Covid-19, a statement from mayor Mzwandile Masina said on Monday.

The clinic was closed on Wednesday and two mobile clinics were set up to service people while the clinic was sanitised.

Of the 55 Duduza clinical staff tested for Covid-19, the results of 45 were negative.

The results of the other 10 people are still outstanding and those staffers will remain in self-isolation until their results have been received.
