SEVERAL popular Durban beaches were closed on Wednesday after medical waste was discovered washed up on the sand.
uMgeni beach‚ Mangrove beach‚ Virginia beach and Glenashley beach — all north of the uMgeni River — had been closed‚ the eThekwini municipality said.
"This follows a discovery of several loads of medical waste that have washed up to the shore which could pose a health hazard to patrons and bathers using the facilities‚" said spokesperson Thulani Mbatha.
"The eThekwini municipality’s health unit is investigating the source of the medical waste."
He said it was unclear where the waste came from. The clean-up operation could take two weeks.
