South Africa – One more nurse has been placed in isolation at the Morningside Medi Clinic in Johannesburg after developing symptoms of viral haemorragic fever (VHF). Medi-Clinic spokesperson, Melinda Pelser, says the nurse had a very high temperature and has been admitted.
Meanwhile, the two patients who’ve been undergoing medical observation and examination at Morningside Medi-Clinic were discharged yesterday. An eleven year-old boy and his 23-year-old nanny had been admitted to an isolated ward at the private hospital after being in direct contact with Gladys Mthembu, the nurse who died of viral haemorragic fever.
Over 100 people who had been in contact with Mthembu are still being monitored every six hours at two hospitals in Gauteng.
