sandf thumb medium90 89News24 reports that the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) has called up members of its Reserve Force to assist in the fight against the coronavirus.  

Spokesperson Siphiwe Dlamini said on Saturday that such members would complement SANDF members already deployed and was in line with the National Disaster Management Act which provides that the defence force must release its personnel to a national Organ of State for rendering of emergency services.  He explained further that the SA Military Health Service had similarly called up Reserve Force doctors, nurses, operational emergency care practitioners together with teams to work with other health practitioners in various fields.  Dlamini appealed to civilian employers to release their staff members called up for Reserve Force service.
