South Africa’s first Coronavirus patient discharged

South Africa’s first Coronavirus patient discharged. The first South African patient to test positive for the deadly Coronavirus to be discharged after having successfully recovered. The man whose identity has been withheld is reported to have been part of a crew who visited Italy for skiing.

Italy is one of the European countries hardest hit by the virus which has infected 31,506 and killed over 2,500 of its citizens.

The news comes after this publication revealed last week that South Africa recorded it’s first successful cure of a coronavirus patient. Coincidentally, the first patient to be cured of the coronavirus was the first person to be infected by the virus. According to News24, KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala confirmed the development on Wednesday.

We can say without any doubt that patient zero, who contracted the virus first, is recovering and he is ready to be discharged. More than 80% of the people who were infected [globally] are now healthy and back in their communities. With us, we believe it will be the same.

Zikalala said this after the KZN provincial executive council held a special meeting to focus on implementing guidelines brought about after President Cyril Ramaphosa declared a state of national disaster.

On Sunday South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa declared the coronavirus a national disaster in an attempt to minimise the outbreak of the deadly virus which was renamed to COVID-19 by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The government’s efforts come at a time the country has seen a spike in the number of cases. According to official reports, the number of confirmed coronavirus (Covid-19) cases in South Africa now stands at 116.
