Eastern Cape Dept of Health conducts COVID-19 screening in SRVM

Kirkwood - The Eastern Cape Department of Health on Thursday visited Bersheba, in the Sundays River Valley Local Municipality, conducting screening and testing for COVID 19.

Scores of residents came out for screening and testing. This area has been identified as a hotspot area because most of the people who have arrived from other provinces reside there.

Residents were happy to be screened and tested but raised some concerns.

“I wanted to know where I stand so that I can be able to protect myself and those closest to me. I am not showing any symptoms but I wanted to be sure because I have heard that some people don’t show any symptoms,” one resident said.

Another resident added; “I am very concerned because most people who have recently arrived here didn’t show up for the screening and testing which poses a risk to a lot of people."

On Friday, the Mobile Testing Unit would be at Enon.
