Suspected case of coronavirus in Eswatini

The Health Ministry has said it is monitoring its first suspected case of novel coronavirus.

The director of Health Services Dr. Vusi Magagula said the woman recently entered tge Kingdom on the 6th of February after travelling from China to South Africa.  Netwerk24 reported that she is currently under quarantine in a hospital in Mbabane and blood samples have been taken for further analysis.

“She presented with a fever and was at the hospital then the rapid response team took over and took up the case. She came through the Ngwenya Port of Entry on February 6 having arrived from the Republic of South Africa.

“I don’t think she was presenting with any symptoms, we only picked her up on the 14th because she was already now in hospital, ill and had to be admitted to the isolation ward. So I guess when she passed through OR [Tambo airport] or even through Ngwenya border post she didn’t have the symptoms,” the SABC reported Dr Magagula as saying.
