'It's genocide' - Denosa on claims poor quality PPEs led to deaths of doctors
More lives will be lost if government fails to deal with the 'rot' of corruption and looters determined to benefit from the coronavirus pandemic.
That's according to the Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (Denosa) which has been responding to the deaths of at least eight doctors in Gauteng from Covid-19.
A number of their colleagues on the frontline claim a lack of quality PPEs led to the deaths of the doctors working at several public hospitals in the province.

You go all out trying to help the community without fear, only to find out whatever you thought was your protection, it was none.Simon Hlungwani, President - DENOSA
This whole thing is perpetuated by people who just want to generate money working together with their colleagues who are in power.Simon Hlungwani, President - DENOSA
