Gauteng Health Department Enhances App to Help with Screenings
The Gauteng health department hopes the addition of a new icon to its mobile app, Mpilo, will help it in its fight against the coronavirus. The enhancement to the app comes after it emerged that seven people tested positive for the virus in South Africa.
Health MEC Bandile Masuku announced the move on Tuesday during a post State of the Province (SOPA) media briefing at the Gauteng legislature. The platform, Mpilo: Healthcare in Your Hands, was launched in 2019 and is aimed at improving patient experience at public healthcare facilities.
