Unvaccinated man denied heart surgery

Can you be denied critical surgery or a procedure if you're not vaccinated? This is exactly what happened to a patient in the US. A Boston hospital rejected a 31-year-old patient for a heart transplant because he hasn't had the Covid-19 vaccine. The hospital's reasoning is due to the shortage of organs it chooses patients with the greatest chance of survival. But what's the situation like in South Africa? Critical Care Physician, Professor Guy Richards, unpacks this. Courtesy #DStv403
