South African Health minister Dr Zweli Mkhize said on Sunday night that he and his wife, Dr May Mkhize, had contracted Covid-19. “I was feeling abnormally exhausted and, as the day progressed, I started loosing appetite. My wife had a cough, was dizzy and extremely exhausted. Given her symptoms, the doctors advised that she must be admitted for observation and rehydration,” Times Live quotes Mkhize as saying. Mkhize noted that he had notified the people he had made contact with in the past few days, which included family members and some staff in the health ministry and that he and his wife were in quarantine at their home.
