The Volkswagen Group South Africa (VWSA) donated 150 beds to the isolation facility at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium.
The Department of Health approached VWSA to assist with resources allowing for more patients to be accommodated.
Nelson Mandela Bay’s isolation facility currently allows low-acuity patients who have been infected with the virus to self-isolate. Initially, there were only 50 beds available.
VWSA has committed to continuously support Nelson Mandela Bay during the current health crisis and has been manufacturing face masks, respirators and ventilators to assist various communities.
