The province’s Health MEC Phophi Ramathuba has urged other South Africans not to panic as sixteen students are back home in Limpopo from China and precautionary measures had been taken.
Ramathuba has called for South Africans to stay calm, claiming the students had been examined thoroughly.
“Upon arrival at OR Tambo International Airport, they were also cleared. They have not shown any signs or symptoms of coronavirus and they have been allowed to go back to their province.”
Ramathuba said all the students were under strict lockdown, quarantined and thoroughly tested before they were removed from China.
“We need to really clarify because this issue has been causing a lot of panics because a lot of wrong information has been dispersed to the public.”
The students will remain in self-isolation for the next 14 days as an extra safety measure.
