South Africans were left shocked after a video went viral which showed monkeys playing around in a hospital ward.
Briefly.co.za gathered the video was posted on Facebook by Dala U Crew and it allegedly took place at the RK Khan hospital.
The video showed monkeys walking on the railings attached to the roof as someone tried to shoo them away.
South Africans were left divided over the footage - while some felt it was funny others added it was a serious health risk for patients.
Wagida Ally commented: "As much this seems to be joke to many. Do u even know what the danger factors are having such animals in hospital. Ppl laugh away alot of us guilty at the fact that not every one of our family or friends can afford medical aid. So they left with no choice but to use this facility."
Sharitha Naidoo added: "These animals carry diseases.... Major health violation."

Prea Mahabeer said: "R K Khan hospital ... the hospital where you get admitted to get better, instead you get discharged in a box."
