The South African mining industry, with the support of the Minerals Council South Africa, is aiming to increase its Covid-19 testing capacity, both for companies and the country’s overall testing objectives, Global Mining Review reports.

Companies, which are required to test employees that fail screening measures, have implemented a risk-based approach that involves additional testing for higher risk people, such as healthcare workers, security personnel, and returning mineworkers, when clusters of infection are identified.

The South African mining industry has undertaken 15,994 tests, as of 25 June 2020.
