The Executive Committee of the Association of Surgeons of South Africa (ASSA), as a proxy of its membership, gives credence to reports of the current healthcare crisis in the Eastern Cape. Multiple valid concerns have been raised by the frontline essential workers. The situation is dire, as surgeons report attempting to save lives in filthy and inhumane conditions.
It is with great sadness that we report the death of our friend and colleague, Dr Timothy Thulo. Dr. Thulo will be missed by all.
