Two doctors and two nurses die of COVID-19 in single week in North West

The North West Health Department has been rocked by the deaths of four medical workers in a single week due to COVID-19, reports The Times. Two doctors and two nurses have died from the virus, the office of Health MEC Madoda Sambatha said.

“We have sadly learnt of the passing of Dr Lomalisa Litenye and Dr Florah Makama. As if that was not enough, the province lost two nurses over the past week. We are saddened by the loss of these health professionals,” said Sambatha.

Litenye was said to have been a well-known health-care practitioner in Mahikeng who specialised as a gynaecology and obstetrics. Dr Florah Makama was a clinical psychologist, also in Mahikeng.
