Minister Naledi Pandor speaks on the coronavirus, the AU and attempts to find missing student Alfa Mpetsheni.

International Relations Minister Naledi Pandor says her ministry has been in touch with South African citizens in Wuhan, China, following the coronavirus outbreak.

She says the group have indicated that they are being looked after and are in safe conditions.

They indicate that they are being looked after by the institutions that they are attached to. They say they are being looked after, they are in safe conditions, provided with food, they have accommodation...

I am not sure where this idea of a desperate group that wants to come back comes from.

Meanwhile, Pandor says the South African embassy is in contact with the foreign ministry in China in an attempt to find a 25-year-old South African student studying at the Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, who has gone missing.

Alfa Mpetsheni was last seen on 15 January 2020 by his friends and spoke to his mother on 18 January.
