    Health Minister Zweli Mkhize has confirmed that 14 Limpopo TVET students, who have returned from China have all tested negative for the coronavirus. In addition, the Range resort will house 122 South African returning from Wuhan, Hubei Province in China.

    The SANDF will direct the operation, and all the returning citizens, and the crew that brought them back will all be housed there. The resort staff will be screened first, and arrangements are made to provide them with medical cover, if needed.

    At the time of the first issue of the report, the number of people tested positive nationally, with the Coronavirus is 16. Apparently a man who was tested positive, then tested negative reducing the number. Tests are being done by the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD), and arrangements are being made with private laboratories to assist.
    The subsequent report confirms +8 positive = 24 cases.

    This is a quotation from Minister Mkhize’s report:
    “Coronavirus doesn’t look at your passport, doesn’t look at your nationality, doesn’t look at your circumstances whether you’re rich or poor, doesn’t care whether you’re within one metre of somebody sneezing, a droplet of infection will hit you.”
