For refusing to be isolated they have been charged with attempted murder.

Police minister Bheki Cele announced the charges against the two coronavirus patient at a press conference on Wednesday March 25, and accused them of exposing others to the deadly virus.

In his speech he said;

“If you break these laws of regulations you are six months in, or fined, or both.

“Two people have been charged already… who deliberately moved around after they were told.

“So it’s not a fairytale to say the law will act and act very harsh on you. The first case was a 52-year old salon owner diagnosed with coronavirus on March 18 and instructed to quarantine for at least 14 days.

“The second charge was filed against a male tourist who tested positive for Covid-19 while on holiday at Kruger National Park.”

The first suspect according to the police spokesperson Vish Naidoo was arrested on Tuesday March 24 after local officials raised an alarm of a coronavirus case being seen around the western city of Ladysmith, in KwaZulu-Natal province.
