GOVERNMENT LAUNCHES HOUSE-TO-HOUSE COVID-19 SCREENING 

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced on Monday that South Africa was now entering a new phase in the fight against Covid-19 and the government would be rolling out a screening, testing, tracing and

monitoring programme on a “huge scale”.

A total of 10 000 field workers will visit homes around the country scanning people for Covid-19 symptoms. Those found to have symptoms would be referred to clinics for testing. People with

moderate symptoms would be treated at home or at Covid-19 facilities, while those with serious symptoms would be transferred to hospitals.

President Ramaphosa also said that a mobile tracing system to track those who had come into contact with infected people and to monitor new cases would be set up, while a number of mobile testing

centres would be set up during April.
