Health Department says letter claiming there are four Covid-19 cases in Sasolburg is fake news

SASOLBURG - The Free State department of health has reportedly denied claims that there had been cases of Covid-19 reported in Sasolburg. This after a letter claiming to be from the provincial department stated that there had been four cases of Covid-19 reported in the township of Zamdela, Sasolburg. TimesLive reports the department says this is false and points to basic errors in the letter. Provincial department spokesperson Mondli Mvambi today said the fake allegation was“negatively affecting” the health institution. He said a fake letterhead, incorrect address of the hospital and the municipality were used in the letter. He said that Covid-19 cases were announced only by the minister of health Zweli Mkhize and not by provincial or any other departments. Mvambi said to this end, we do not have any cases in Sasolburg.
