It comes as reported cases of the virus are on the increase.


Premier Refilwe Mtshweni-Tsipane will address an urgent press briefing today (12 Mar 2020) on the Coronavirus.

This comes after Mpumalanga recorded its first case of the virus today, a 27 year-old woman who had traveled to the United States and returned to the country on 7 March.

Reported cases continue to be on the increase witha total of 17 cases now confirmed by the health department.

Yesterday the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus a global pandemic.

The premier will address the media at the Riverside government complex at 1 o’clock this afternoon alongside health MEC Sasekani Manzini.
