gautengEWN reports that Gauteng Health MEC Gwen Ramokgopa says the strike by mortuary workers has resulted in a backlog of at least 150 bodies still needing postmortems.  

The three-week strike affecting 10 state mortuaries has officially come to an end, meaning that all the mortuaries in the province are now fully operational.  Ramokgopa apologised to the aggrieved families for the inconvenience caused by the strike.  “We’ll assure that we do everything to expedite these backlogs.  We’d also like to express our sincere apologies to the families,” she said, adding that she was confident the postmortems would be done by next Tuesday.
