The MEC has appealed to anyone who may be infected with the coronavirus in the province to avail themselves for testing and voluntary self-quarantine.
MEC Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu said that the KZN provincial government had now added two more facilities to the province’s four dedicated COVID-19 response medical centres.
"We've decided to add two other hospitals, which is Doris Goodwin Hospital and Richmond Hospital. We're going to have these wards in every district."
Simelane-Zulu also called for a moratorium on sexual activity by those who may easily transmit the virus.
"We want to emphasise precautionary measures - washing of hands, use of sanitisers, keeping social distance. Now keeping social distance of 1.5m means no kissing."
