We are currently making final touches to Bell Medical Centre so that it can accommodate Covid-19 patients. The town has recorded its first case of a returnee from South Africa which is currently in self-isolation at home
Masiyayatsva also urges the Redcliff residents not to panic and said:
There is no need for the community to fear as our health department visited the house, made some assessments and concluded that the place is adequate for self-isolation. There are necessary ablution facilities for the patient as he has his own toilet.
Redcliff prior to recording its first case did not have an isolation facility.
