Netcare to aid government in the fight against the coronavirus

VAAL TRIANGLE - The Netcare private hospital group will treat state patients diagnosed with COVID-19 at their healthcare facilities. CEO of Netcare, Dr. Richard Friedland says the hospital group would treat COVID-19 patients on a non-profit basis. He also added that predictions show the health care system will struggle to handle the growing number of patients who need a hospital and intensive care. Friedland says the hospital group has already implemented measures to protect doctors and health workers against the virus, and patients would be pre-approved before being allowed to any Netcare premises.
