3. South Africa: The second wave is overwhelming hospitals
As South Africa experiences harrowing death and infection rates, health experts have stated the government’s readiness for the second wave of COVID-19. The SA Medical Association (SAMA) said the country is less prepared than it was for the first wave. It said little effort has been made to boost staff complements at hospitals after large numbers of health-care workers succumbed to the coronavirus.
The media has also learned that despite being informed in September that an audit of 160 hospitals found that most required urgent upgrades to patient oxygen-supply systems, the government has done little to fix the problems. With infections skyrocketing, experts say a quick vaccine rollout is SA’s final defense. But this has been botched too, they say.
