The #KnysnaFire has lef to patients being moved from the Knysna Hospital to other neighbouring facilities not affected by the fire. The fire has so far destroyed 160 structures.
The Knysna Hospital was in the direct line of the fire and there's smoke everywhere. Seventy patients had to be moved, the first 6 were critically ill and moved to Life Health.— Dr Beth Engelbrecht, HoD, Western Cape Department of Health
Some of the patients homes have been destroyed and have to remain with us. The firefighters did a good job protecting the hospital which has minimal damage but I will have a better update later today.— Dr Beth Engelbrecht, HoD, Western Cape Department of Health
