Hearses queue up at a Durban hospital

A grim video has surfaced showing the toll that Covid-19 is taking in Durban.

The video shows more than ten hearse vehicles from different funeral parlours queuing to collect bodies at RK Khan Hospital in Chatsworth, Durban, this week.

It was shot by a social media user who expresses his shock throughout the 30 seconds video with comments such as “Khona osaphika ukuthi kuyafiwa e RK Khan” (is there someone who’s still denying people are dying at RK Khan?) in isiZulu.

The man is heard saying “all these cars are here to collect corpses. It is like (people) are dying like mice.”

Covid-19 is a major contributing factor to the long queues of people coming to collect their loved ones in the hospital.
