Fire and no water: Johannesburg’s hospitals are in critical condition and need urgent help 

Johannesburg’s public health services are on life support and the prognosis is poor. There are no signs of urgency to bring Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital back online after a fire forced its closure. Not far away, both Helen Joseph and Rahima Moosa hospitals are operating under extremely difficult conditions as their water supply has been intermittent for days.
