Spokesperson Noluthando Nkosi said one case was being handled by a departmental facility, while the other was at a private facility in Durban.

The department announced in the late hours of Thursday that tests were made and no sign of the virus was found.

“We can now say that both tests came back negative, and neither patient has coronavirus” said dept of health in the province.
