First case of coronavirus registered in eSwatini The Health Ministry in eSwatini says the country has registered its first suspected case of the deadly coronavirus.

The Health Ministry in eSwatini says the country has registered its first suspected case of the deadly coronavirus. The case was identified on Friday in someone who had recently arrived in South Africa from China and entered the Kingdom on February 6th.

, with 25 nations confirming a total of 191 cases.Director of Health Services in eSwatini, Dr. Vusi Magagula says the person has been placed in quarantine 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 or even through Ngwenya border post she didn’t have the symptoms.”

How can you say first cases registered and next sentence say suspected? Which one is it Wish it could attack that stupid king of swazi

Fuck... Where are thiz Freakin Chinese people going? They shld stay in China and suffer the effects of eatin silly things THIS IS SO BAD FOR THE AFRICAN COUNTRIES. This is not good at all, the closer it comes to us the more vigilant we must be as South Africans Oh is here mos next door, I wonder the officials know that virus is at Swatin? OK they use that phrase. EZAKWAMAKELWANI ZEZAPHA, SINGENA EZALAAA.

Yippee. It is finally in Africa. Let the sports begin. There is no way of getting from China to Eswatini without passing through South Africa.... That's all I can say How did she travel through border post, alone? In a bus, shuttle or taxi, were there other passengers? Have they been located? Why no screening at Oshoek & Ngwenya. Kindly inform public. At border people are packed in a railing queue to the counter on SA side, unhealthy.

Suspected... stop scaring people. Oh my God... family Pongola they nearby Swaziland boarders are closely our town Pongola like Golela boarder and others illegal entrance from Swaziland to South Africa but I have a hope because Chine Ambassador said South Africa well prepared for Corona virus Did they send samples here for tests as usual?
