Following President Ramaphosa’s visit at the Ranch Hotel in Polokwane yesterday, the evacuees from China in Wuhan are now free to go and join their families.

Ramaphosa declared the Ranch Resort a green zone after everyone, who had been placed under quarantine there, has tested negative for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The group of 112 citizens was placed under quarantine at the Ranch Resort in Polokwane from 14 March 2020 after they were repatriated from Wuhan in the Hubei Province of the People’s Republic of China, following the outbreak of COVID-19.

Minister of Health Dr. Zweli Mkhize announced on Monday noon that the evacuees are indeed leaving the hotel to be reunited with their families.
