Eastern Cape Health MEC said ambulances were sent to Nelson Mandela Bay — but no sign of them yet

After heated questions in Parliament last week, the Eastern Cape MEC for Health, Sindiswa Gomba, assured MPs that the ambulance fleet in Nelson Mandela Bay, which has been hit hard by Covid-19, had already been boosted by 10 more vehicles. At the time, doctors were complaining that there was a single ambulance in Nelson Mandela Bay for Covid-19 patients and only one in Uitenhage. However, a week later, there has been no sign of the emergency vehicles, only the promises that they will arrive.
