Western Cape Premier Alan Winde has visited the Cape Town International Convention Centre to inspect the progress made in turning it into a quarantine site for Covid-19 cases.
The facility will have 862 beds.
Contractors have been on site for just over 2 weeks.
The quarantine site is expected to open on the
8th of June.
Winde says the CTICC is being used to ensure that there are enough beds for patients during the most critical period of the outbreak.
Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Health and the Select Committee on Health and Social Services will also visit Tygerberg Hospital and the CTICC today."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p235x350/101137064_3205365252849170_1424916182825172992_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=4N1TuXXOLhYAX-zZibu&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=eca15a4156661676f90517315e80df85&oe=5EF3A37E","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p261x260/100767037_3205365286182500_8586626290361040896_n.jpg?_nc_cat=110&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=C5P5CR6ot14AX-GxR2g&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=9467d4734dfeccdd9a49ce68b81a19fb&oe=5EF42F33","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p261x260/100754582_3205365309515831_4718296834815033344_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=K9xs2NVxBigAX-fZO31&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=15a094bb6c977ff714028a9d1265cdf0&oe=5EF1D3D3"
