Gauteng needs a strategy to prevent COVID-19 to flatten the post-summit curve, Dr Aslam Dasoo said at the Progressive Health Forum. Dasoo said Gauteng was of course in a better position in terms of the availability of more health resources in the public and private sector of health, but unlike provinces such as the Eastern Cape it was able to improve and flatten the summit but not be able to manage it. The Forum made a proposal calling for a joint public, private and health sector response to COVID-19.    Show Source Texts


Another option Gauteng must consider is intermittent blocking. Dasoo says once the Eastern Cape reaches the summit, it should begin to take rapid preventive action at known hotspots to slow its curve. If we don't, Gautam Gambhir's intermittent blocking measures will be the only option left.    Show Source Texts
