SDM Covid-19 Command Council Chair, Executive Mayor Ramaila, concerned over escalating infections.

SEKHUKHUNE – Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) Executive Mayor and the district’s COVID-19 Command Council Chairperson, Stanley Ramaila, has expressed concerns that the area was becoming a Coronavirus epicenter in the province.

Ramaila’s concerns were raised after Sunday’s, 17 May 2020, provincial health department’s data which indicated Sekhukhune District Municipality had 24 active cases, up from the 19 recorded on Saturday, 16 May 2020.

The executive mayor said evidently, mines in the district were a breeding ground for the Coronavirus, because all the active infection cases were recorded in the eastern limb of the Bushveld Complex.

He added that of all the four local municipalities in the district, only Fetakgomo-Tubatse Local Municipality had active positive cases.

“We are pleading with our communities in the area to be extremely vigilant, at the same time, we call on the mines to increase their health and safety protocols,” said Ramaila.

Executive Mayor Ramaila said among other things, mines ought to screen, test and quarantine all the workers for at least 14 days in terms of the agreement reached when they briefed the district command council about their preparedness to resume operations.
