I think this will be that final thing needed to open the floodgates of leaving. Who will stay and be forced to use doctors prescribed by the ANC? Not me.

Visa applications went in this morning. The missus will be in the UK by the end of October. That's a specialist down and more to follow. Two friends, one a specialist in geriatrics and the other a MD with a PhD in immunology, left a year or so ago. I'm sure we're just some of many.

Will the sangomas be able to issues scripts for the scheduled medicine? If yes, the ANC wont be worried. Additionally, they can get to have more tenders.

Meh, doctors? Who needs them anyway?

Just take your Ivermectin and call me in the morning...

As long as vets are staying we should be okay...
Perhaps you should read this.

Any country that has limited their migration programs due to covid has made exceptions for health response and economic recovery. So it makes sense that their are opportunities for health workers. Still, these articles come across as fear mongering.

Better have the media tell it like it is
