Reached for comments earlier, Welcome Mdluli, the President of the Swaziland Democratic Nurses Union(SWADNU) confirmed that the country was facing a health crisis that came with the surge in confirmed cases, he said it shouldn’t be a secret when a high profile person tests positive to COVID-19.
“It shouldn\'t be a secret that a high profile person has tested positive to COVID-19 and we don’t expect them to be treated in expensive private hospitals after they destroyed the health system. They must just declare that they are sick so that they can get the necessary support. This problem has been created by Government’s lack of commitment to address the health crisis in the country and the various public hospitals are facing a shortage of working equipment including drugs”,said the Nurses President.
On Saturday, this publication reported that Prince Hlangusempi was admitted at the same clinic, he had tested positive to COVID-19.
Army Commander Jeffery Shabalala tested positive to COVID-19 about two weeks ago, his family members including his wife and one child later tested positive to COVID-19.
