Mkhize says that there is still no cause for concern. Everyone who says South Africa is not ready, we already had a few pandemics that we could deal with effectively. Yes, there are health care challenges, but we’re going to be able to deal with them.
Mkhize says once someone has tested negative after the 14-day latency period, there is no risk that they will be able to transmit the virus.
“We can look at China as an example of how such a pandemic should be handled.”
