JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (Denosa) is demanding that the St Augustine's Hospital in Durban be closed down.
Sixty-six people have tested positive for COVID-19 at the health facility and 48 of them are believed to be staff members.
The union is accusing the hospital of negligence.
Denosa KZN's Mandla Shabangu says closing parts of the hospital will not solve the problem.
"They must close the whole hospital, fumigate the whole thing and then take it from there. If the minister is serious he must set an example and close it down".
