Pretoria News - - FRONT PAGE -

As coro­n­avirus cases in South Africa con­tinue to rise, more and more peo­ple are con­cerned about whether or not they have con­tracted the virus.

Out of fear of in­fec­tion, gen­eral prac­ti­tion­ers have urged pa­tients to get tested at spe­cialised sites in­stead of vis­it­ing their nearby doc­tor.

Hos­pi­tals and clin­ics across South Africa have opened their doors as es­tab­lished Covid-19 test­ing sites.

Peo­ple are ad­vised to get tested if they have symp­toms such as cough, sore throat, short­ness of breath or fever and have done one of the fol­low­ing:

◆ Been in con­tact with some­one who has

Covid-19.

◆ Have trav­elled to a coun­try where they

had a high risk of get­ting in­fected.

◆ Have worked in, or been to a health­care fa­cil­ity treat­ing peo­ple with Covid-19.

◆ Have a se­vere case of pneu­mo­nia with

an un­known cause.
