The Department of Health stays focused on battling the Covid-19 pandemic after President Cyril Ramaphosa's choice, to put Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize on exceptional leave, says chief general Dr Sandile Buthelezi.

"It's implied that these are troublesome occasions we end up in. As chief general, I wish to promise the country that we stay submitted and equipped for dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Executing a sloped up vaccine program and running the public projects as we are driven by the acting minister of health, Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane," Buthelezi said in a proclamation on Tuesday.

The nation has been inoculating individuals 60 years and more seasoned using, the two-portion Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine while it hangs tight for the go-ahead from US controllers before it can begin regulating the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. 


"Our spirits were lifted today [Tuesday] when we discovered that we have formally inoculated more than 1 million senior residents, matured 60 years or more under stage two.

In their dealings with an organ of state in such a way as to inappropriately advantage the immediate individual or private monetary, or business interests of such part or any close group of that part or any colleague of that part or the close group of that part'. 


"Also, area 5.2.7 states that a part may 'not hall for any compensation or get any award, advantage or present for that part or for the close group of that part or the colleague of that part or close group of that part, for making such portrayal as a part for any individual or body'," Gwarube said in an articulation.
