First case of coronavirus confirmed in South Africa!
There has been a confirmed case of the coronavirus in KwaZulu Natal. The patient apparently recently travelled to Italy recently with his wife.
In a statement released by the Department of Health and Minister of health, Zweli Mkhize, the tracer team has been deployed to KZN with epidemiologists and clinicians from NICD. Both the doctor and the patient has been isolated and swabs have been taken from the man’s wife and children for tests.
A media briefing will be held later after the parliamentary debate this evening.
This is a developing story.
