McGluwa, Mr JJ to ask the Minister of Health

Whether, with reference to the reply by the Minister of Home Affairs to question 1308 on 20 July 2020, there have been outbreaks of Covid-19 in the areas where the Chinese nationals had visited during their stay in the Republic; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?


The Department of Health does not keep records of the areas that Chinese nationals visit in South Africa. Furthermore, the laboratory requisition form does not include nationality hence we cannot report on the diagnosis of persons of Chinese Nationality.
