Lesotho Records First Case of Coronavirus

Lesotho has become the last African country to record COVID-19 cases reportedly from a traveller who had visited Saudi Arabia.

This past wednesday, South Africa reported that out of 81 tests that have been conducted on travellers from South Africa and Saudi Arabia, one was positive. Lesotho is still awaiting the results of an additional 301 tests.

Reports of the outbreak comes at a politically uncertain time as Lesotho’s Prime Minister, Thomas Thabane is set to resign this week following  the collapse of his coalition in parliament in addition to having been charged for the murder of his former wife almost three years ago.
