Netcare has warned members of the public to be vigilant of criminals pretending to be officials under the guise of conducting Covid-19 home screenings.
“Please note that staff members from the Netcare Group, including from Netcare hospitals, Netcare 911 or Medicross medical and dental centres, are NOT doing door-to-door Covid-19 screenings,” Netcare said in a statement on Monday.
This comes after the hospital group received reports that criminals are going to homes in various areas, claiming to be from Netcare or Netcare 911, and saying they are assisting the Department of Health with door-to-door screening for Covid-19 (coronavirus).
“Should someone claiming to be a representative from Netcare, Netcare 911 or Medicross arrive at your home or business premises claiming to do screening for the coronavirus, do not allow them onto your property or inside your business premises for your own safety, but please alert SAPS immediately,” the group further warned.
