The South African government has said that four of its citizens had to remain behind during repatriation from Wuhan in China – the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak – as they displayed symptoms of the virus.
The Minister of Health Zweli Mkhize said the four were not infected.
He added that everyone was tested and all those who came into the country tested negative.
Two of them have been isolated as they developed a mild cough on arrival but the minister says there is nothing to worry about the two.
The government repatriated over 100 people on Saturday and they are being quarantined at a hotel in Limpopo province.
