SA COVID-16: Third case confirmed

The Health Minister of South Africa, Zweli Mkhize has recently confirmed a third case of the novel coronavirus in SA on Sunday.

In a statement, he said: “This morning we have received results of the direct contact of the first patient, his wife. She had also traveled with him to Italy as part of the group of ten(10). I now wish to advise the public that she has tested positive for COVID-19 and is, therefore, the thirst confirmed case in South Africa.”

The person infected was among the 10 people who recently traveled to Italy and only 9 returned to the country.

“We expect the results of the other 6 group members who had travelled to Italy within the next 48 hours. It is important to advise the public that the couple’s children were tested and their results have come out negative. However, as part of taking extra precautions, these children will remain in self-quarantine until their parents have tested negative. At that point, they will also be tested to ensure that they remain negative. Until then they will be regarded as potentially infected. This means they will continue not attend school. This is in an effort to curb the risk of spread to other children and teachers.”

A report on iBusiness, confirmed that a 3rd Case was indeed inevitable.
