Rustenburg - A man quarantined at Wilkins Hospital for a suspected case of COVID-19 coronavirus was discharged after tests came out negative for the coronavirus which has spread across the globe after being first detected in China, Zimbabwe media reported on Tuesday.

State-owned newspaper The Herald said the 32-year-old Chinese man was discharged on Monday.

He arrived at Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport from Hunan province in China on Sunday afternoon and was taken into isolation for tests.

The man was isolated because he had a positive travel history, although he showed no signs or symptoms of COVID-19 coronavirus.

The Herald quoted health and child care minister Dr Obadiah Moyo as saying Zimbabwe had so far not recorded any COVID-19 coronavirus cases.
