JOHANNESBURG - The South African Medical Association (SAMA) says the Eastern Cape needs urgent intervention.
SAMA says it is alarmed at the severe lack of leadership in the province.
According to the association, there are no permanently employed leaders in all critical posts.
It says this compromises the delivery of healthcare to the province.
SAMA's vice-chairperson, Mvuyisi Mzukwa says it was a grave mistake to allow alcohol during a pandemic.
Health Minister Zweli Mkhize has expressed concern over the recent COVID-19 outbreaks in the province.
