144 psychiatric patients dead in South Africa

Mangena was one of at least 144 psychiatric patients who died after South Africa's Gauteng provincial government hastily transferred 1,711 state-funded psychiatric patients in 2015 and 2016 from Life Esidimeni, a private health care provider, to other facilities, dozens of which were not properly licensed.
The death toll is expected to be higher: Two years later, the whereabouts of 44 patients are still unknown.
