Durban - The parents who were taken to court by the KZN Health MEC for not allowing their son to have a blood transfusion, wanted the interim order to be set aside.
The matter was heard in the Durban High Court on Wednesday.
On September 28, Judge Graham Lopes made an order instructing that the couple's 5-year-old son, who suffers from sickle cell anaemia be given the blood transfusion, if necessary.
On Wednesday the couple made an application to have the interim order set aside.
However Advocate Dashendra Naidoo, acting on behalf of the paediatrician at Addington Hospital and the KZN Health MEC, argued that it should not happen as it was not in the best interest of the minor child to discharge the order.
