Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier revealed on Wednesday that the Khayelitsha Thusong Centre has been closed due to a decrease in new COVID-19 cases in the area.

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) sponsored the facility in partnership with the provincial government and the City of Cape Town. The hospital had over 200 COVID-19 patients that were admitted.

Winde said that it will be moved to the Eastern Cape.

MSF have been an amazing partner in this response and have provided a wonderful service to the people of Khayelitsha. Now, it’s been broken down and it’s going to be moved to the Eastern Cape, and we support that move,” Winde said.

It’s also a bit of a bittersweet feeling because it was such an amazing facility. The great thing is that it can be broken down because the numbers are dropping here in Khayelitsha,” he added.
