“These are clinicians, these are people who know thecircumstancesof their domestic worker and we were saying that they could have done better particularly in alerting authorities to say this person cannot self-quarantine under the circumstances, therefore, would you want them to take over because they simply said they told the person to self-q

uarantine?Now we are saying an ordinary person couldn’t have applied their mind butthat’snot what we expected from Read more: SABC News Online »

1. They self-isolated as is standard. 2. They advised the domestic not to return to work. 3. She tested negative. 4. MEC is said to have told them that they came 'to infect my rural people', othering the doctors (of another ethnic group). A wiff of racial bias? Where do all these bitter, hate filled people come from?

But what's the issue here? How did the doctors compromise their domestic workers? How is the domestic worker's child affected? Why is Mec of Health fighting medical doctors? Is it bcos they work in another province? But SABC, Your headline is disgusting We would like to hear the story from the two doctors as well i am sure there is more to this story

This is negligence this two doctors must be arrested ASAP Arrest them & charge them with murder case closed! Lindz_111 Is that so kante 🤔 PhophiRamathuba please jand them to GenBheki_Cele SAPoliceService Those Drs are irresponsible. They should have known better. That was very irresponsible of them.its most likely that domestic worker also got the virus.and then her family too.and then the net goes on and on

They have violated their oath... The doctors are so irresponsible Must be imprisoned Ababoshwe They need to be arrested, just like the man who travelled from Gauteng to Tzaneen. Arrest them So are they going to be arrested just like any other citizen that violate the law? Sad and tricky one this as doctors have from day one put patients ahead of their lives making huge sacrifices.

They must charged with attempted murder This matter is before the courts. Let's wait for the process Attempted murder Attempted murder Attempted murder🌚. Huna vhathu vha re na mbilu mmbi This white folks knows no God. These doctors shud b struck off the roll of doctors as they not only acted recklessly but also intentional. These are not ordinary people but medical professionals who shud have known better. They can't be allowed to deliberately spread the virus to the vuneral domestic worker

Evil at its best Detain those fools... drknwitallsa My suspicion was that someone was not telling the whole truth But they have not quarantined that netball lady who tested positive. Is it because she is their friend? Stupidity Heartless they must be arrested They must be arrested. Are those stupid people white or black

They need to be killed They knew exactly what they were doing. That's unethical by these doctors. Hope action will be taken against them. Lol they did it on purpose Murderers Aaaah ah ah ah Jail The heading is misleading. They didn’t let her come to work after testing positive, they sent her home. While still irresponsible it’s two completely different things

Very selfish. Isn't knowingly exposing others to the virus an offence if not a crime under the guidelines and regulations Action must be taken. Fine those idiots ! Arrest those motherfuckers!! They must be fired for risking other people's life and jailed oh no! They are waiting for Correspondence from the Prophets of Bling and Wealth They have not spoken yet They are very busy collecting Money They have not reached a Target yet

Hand them to Bheki Cele Hayibo ngumhlola😳 They must be arrested HealthLimpopo futsek you are twisting the facts but truth shall prevail. You cannot kidnap and force them to Quarentine at a unregistered site, it's against the law. Revoke their license. Eish yah ne Bathong ba modimo Arrest them
