Following the announcement of a National State of Disaster in the country by President Cyril Ramaphosa as we deal with the global pandemic that is the Coronavirus, MEC for Health in KwaZulu-Natal, Ms Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu has announced that hospital visiting hours throughout the province will be amended until further notice.
