Health department suspends Covid-19 screening at Beitbridge border

Robbers pounce at border!

The Health Department has suspended Covid-19 screening at the Beitbridge border post to allow traffic to flow.

It comes after the deaths of at least 15 people waiting to cross into Zimbabwe.

The department says it has to ensure the safety of all South Africans.

Health department spokesperson Popo Maja said, in the interest of addressing the congestion, the department suspended temperature screening and health questionnaires from 23 December because “the same is performed on the Zimbabwe immigration side”.

First, it has been reported that the antigen testing requirement, which the department introduced through amended health directions, is slowing down processes at the border.
