Media Statement by KZN Health MEC Ms Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu on the latest developments at Kingsway Hospital

15 April 2020

We note the decision by management of Kingsway Hospital to close the hospital, following the latest COVID - 19-related incidents at the facility, which are extremely worrying.

We have sent a team of senior Departmental officials to investigate what has transpired, as well as establish how the hospital is managing the situation.

These latest developments will also form part of the ongoing investigation involving St Augustine's Hospital, which is owned by the same hospital group.

The Department will continue to closely monitor the situation, and will expect consequence management if any negligence is found on the part of any individual.
