I ascribe this reduction in the rate of increase due to: closing the borders, enforcing quarantine on inbound travelers, lockdown has slowed internal transmission by reducing the spread during large gatherings and overcrowded transport routes eg Trains, buses and taxis pic.twitter.com/T1xPDS4bhr— Dr Zweli Mkhize (@DrZweliMkhize) April 1, 2020
He also added that he has tested negative for the virus.
Iv has all sorts of asthma and sinus issues for a long time. I have tested for #COVID19 and I am negative. Air conditioners also aggravate the cough— Dr Zweli Mkhize (@DrZweliMkhize) April 1, 2020
