Four million rand’s worth of COVID-19 health equipment comprising temperature monitors, face recognition, and security metal detectors were donated to several hospitals and clinics in Mpumalanga. The beneficiaries included the Rob Ferreira Hospital, Themba Hospital, Tonga Hospital, Embhuleni Hospital in the Elukwatini region, Tintswalo Hospital, and the Kanyamazane Clinic.
The result is that these 4IR smart COVID-19 scanners have helped eliminate queues and have assisted in identifying high-risk patients with COVID-19 symptoms in time.
“We believe that the health and safety of South Africans are important, and we are determined to continue helping as many people as we can,” states Roberta Gumeda. “The scanners as temperature detectors will always have a use at these medical facilities, even after the COVID-19 pandemic has passed.”
The donation of the medical equipment was made possible by The Robert Gumede Keni Foundation in conjunction with Gijima.
