BUSINESSLIVE The government is rapidly expanding the number of sites that can provide Covid-19 testing, aiming to cover 6,000 patients a day as soon as possible, according to National Health Laboratory Service (NHLS) CEO Kamy Chetty. SA is the worst affected country in sub-Saharan Africa, and has seen its outbreak grow rapidly since the first case was announced by health minister Zweli Mkhize a fortnight ago. The tally of confirmed cases of Covid-19 stood at 150 on Thursday, and the figure is expected to be as high as 200 by Friday, the minister told the SA Medical Association on Thursday night.
