Botswana’s president has declared a state of emergency and a lockdown.
This follows after Botswana’s health minister, Dr Lemogang Kwape, took to the country’s national broadcaster BTV last night and announced that three people had tested positive for the deadly virus.
“Two males and a female tested positive. Two of three went to Thailand while the other one went to the UK,” Kwape said.
