She says one of the journalist wrote on the headlines, saying that in Mankweng hospital there are no beds and 16 people are dying daily.
She further says she personally went there on the following day and she found that the news was false.
She added that 43 numbers of people were discharged in Mankweng and provincially they are receiving rising numbers of recoveries every day and more of people are recovering on their own without the special attention of the health workers.
