184 South Africans trapped in coronavirus hotspot

184 South Africans are stranded in Wuhan, China, the epicentre of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, with plans to bring them home thrown into disarray.

This is according to a report by the Sunday Times, which said the planned 21-day quarantine site where they would be taken upon return - the Black Mountain Hotel in the Free State - cancelled its agreement with the government due to "abuse of staff".

sho black mountain hotel for an infectious virus quarantine.


good on the hotel imo.

our government has no fuggin clue how to handle this. at least in a shithole the **** is kept in a hole, here its just thrown all over, even in airports.


why arent military spaces used for this? why is it being pushed off to private/public spaces?

edit: if the selected "service providers" are being treated so badly that they tell government to fo.ad, imagine how the quarantined people will be treated.

The government said it had received reports of potential service providers being intimated, which was making it difficult for it to organise the return of its citizens.
Intimate?

TL;DR They not trapped by Chinese, ZA don't have facilities for quarantine.

2-19 is a few
20-199 is tens
200-1999 is hundreds
etc

184 is tens.

Many don't want to come to ZA as they are more likely to die in ZA (Poor Health System, Life Esidimeni anyone, high murder rate, crime)
