Hatter staff volunteering at COVID19 case and contract tracing

26 May 2020 - 13:00

As we enter day 61 of SA lockdown, many in the institute have been working incredibly hard on a number of fronts. Hatter Institute would like to send a special thanks to the Dr Gasnat Shaboodien, Carmielita Abrahams, Polycarp Ndibangwi, Steven Kamuli, Siphokazi Khonkwane, and Peter Hudson who are volunteering their services in COVID19 case and contract tracing.

Their daily task involves tracking cases, their contacts, liaising with community teams, arranging admission into isolation facilities, doing epidemiological work, and identifying clusters.

Thousands of words cannot express our gratitude to the staff and students of Hatter for their immense contribution towards saving lives during the COVID19 global pandemic.  Thank you for your service and sacrifice during this difficult time.
