        Coronavirus - Eswatini: Partial Lockdown Update – COVID-19
        Last updated: 13 hours ago

        The Kingdom of Eswatini entered its sixth day of the Partial Lockdown initiated to halt the spread of the coronavirus. With 850 000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and over 41000 deaths globally, this virus is proving to be among the biggest health challenges the world has faced in many years. This is a highly contagious virus that has the tendency to spread like wildfire across communities and countries.

        Eswatini remains with nine confirmed COVID-19 cases, and at high risk and high alert. The Kingdom is currently under a status of National Emergency. The decision to activate a partial lockdown was crucial in flattening the curve and ensuring that the number of infected does not balloon to over burden our already strained health system. The past six days has been a period of many lessons with false starts and uncertainty is some instance as EmaSwati adapted to a change of lifestyle never experienced before...

            Rustenburg - Eswatini has recorded two more new confirmed cases of Covid-19 bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 12, Health Minister Lizzie Nkosi said on Wednesday.

            "The 11th case is a 44-year-old male from the Hhohho Region, who is a clinician with no history of travel.

            “The 12th case is a female, 36 years old, of Manzini Region. She has a history of contact with a regular traveller to South Africa. The ministry is taking steps to ensure that all those who were in contact with these two news cases are being tested," Nkosi said.

            The ministry said that seven patients had tested negative and had been discharged.

            Nkosi requested the public to cooperate with rapid response teams as they go about their duties finding contacts of positive cases.

            She said preparations to conduct testing locally were progressing well.
            “The only security we have is our ability to adapt."
