Health Minister, Dr. Zweli Mkhize and his wife, Dr. May Mkhize, are in quarantine after testing positive for the coronavirus.

The Minister tweeted on Sunday evening that they had decided on Saturday to get tested after he started showing mild symptoms.

“Our close contacts over the past week have been a few family members and some of my Health Ministry team,” he said.

The Minister said they had been informed and advised to immediately isolate in their homes and be tested.

Dr. Mkhize said he would use this “quarantine period to rest and recharge because our task to improve the health services of our country and the lives of our people, even post-Covid19 remains of paramount importance,” he said.

“I want to beg that we do not neglect wearing our masks, social distancing, and washing/sanitizing our hands.  As a country, we’ve made significant strides in our fight against this pandemic. Let us not regress,” he said.
