BREAKING NEWS: Four more people have now tested positive for the coronavirus in South Africa. This was revealed during a media briefing of the inter-ministerial joint committee in Pretoria earlier today. Health Minister Zweli Mkhize says the patients, who are in Pietermaritzburg, are part of the group of 10 that had gone to Italy recently. He says that this brings the total of positive cases to seven. An expert says the greatest challenge in bringing the spread of the coronavirus under control is the difficulty in identifying people who are infected during the early stages when they display no symptoms. This is the view expressed to the media by Professor of Vaccinology at the University of Witwatersrand, Shabir Madhi.
