Unused PPE found floating in river


Unused Personal Protective Equipment was found floating in a Pretoria river on Sunday.

A video shows gloves and masks floating on the river that runs through the Irene Country Club.

The current acting Gauteng Health MEC, Jacob Mamabolo, said a criminal case has been opened.

The country is already facing a shortage of protective gear meant to Safeguard healthcare workers.

Seeing PPE that hasn’t been used, floating in a river could blow questions in the air about how the government is mismanaging them.

And judging from recent accusations of PPE tender fraud, this discovery of unused PPE might add up to the accusations against the government.
