The EFF Wants Covid-19 Patients To Be Kept In-State Quarantine On Robben Island

The EFF has called for all people infected with coronavirus to be held in state quarantine, preferably on Robben Island.

South Africa’s confirmed positive cases now stand at 24, but this so far is limited to four provinces. All the local cases involve people who have been overseas and traveled to South Africa.

A group of 122 South Africans who are returning from coronavirus-hit Wuhan, China, are expected to arrive this weekend and will be in quarantine at the Protea Hotel’s The Ranch Resort, 25km from Polokwane, for 21 days.

In a statement by the party, the EFF has said that while South Africans being repatriated from China will be “under forced, state quarantine”, all individuals diagnosed with coronavirus are currently allowed to self-quarantine. According to the statement, self-quarantine does not include “supervision … of their activities or any guarantee that they have indeed quarantined”.
