As rumours spread regarding Thaba 'Nchu in the Free State as the site for quarantine of South Africans repatriated from Wuhan – the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, News24 toured Bloemfontein's Pelonomi Hospital – the province's isolation spot.

A second case of the novel coronavirus has been confirmed in South Africa. A 39-year-old woman from Gauteng, who was part of the same travel group to Italy as the first case, has been diagnosed with the virus, Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize said on Saturday.
