One week on

Just one week ago, I was singing the praises of the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Community Hospital in Durban. And that despite the fact I had to cross a good-natured but vocal picket line to get in:

Sadly, it seems that just one week on, the public sector workers strike has turned nasty, with almost unbelievable reports of working nurses being forced out of ICUs at gunpoint and mobs invading operating theatres.
And several hospitals – including IALCH – have been blockaded (also here).

I’m due to visit a another public hospital tomorrow – but I may be forced to postpone…
