Four Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) officers have tested positive for Covid-19.
One officer fell ill on the night shift last Wednesday and was tested at Milpark Hospital but had since been discharged and was in quarantine.
“The officer has been discharged and is now in quarantine at one of the medical facilities in the City which specialises in the treatment of COVID-19 patients,” JMPD spokesperson Wayne Minnaar said in a statement.
Minnaar added that JMPD management had arranged for other officers who worked with the infected officer to be tested.
On Monday, 107 officers were tested.
