DURBAN -The loss of a young, pregnant patient to the coronavirus hit a doctor in Chatsworth, KwaZulu Natal, hard.

Dr Diveshni Govender recently left her surgery to open a free-of-charge COVID-19 clinic as a result.

It took only 72-hours to convert the Havenside Community Hall into a medical facility.

And two weeks later, more than 100 patients have walked through its doors.
