According to reports, a 28-year-old doctor, who was also the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Limpopo has now tested negative.
Limpopo health MEC, Dr. Phophi Ramathuba, welcomed the news in a statement issued on Monday and commended the doctor’s self-discipline because he “immediately self-quarantined after his return from overseas and also self-isolated after testing positive”.
According to the statement, he is now ready to be apart of society.
“This must also give hope to the community to say, if we do what is right, we can contain the spread of this disease,” said Ramathuba.
Limpopo now has 13 laboratory-confirmed Covid-19 cases, including the previously mentioned recovered case. The national health department has reportedly excluded the recovery from the statistics of confirmed cases.
