SEVEN members from a single-family in Beitbridge yesterday tested positive for COVID-19 after one of their relatives, who had travelled to South Africa, escaped from a quarantine centre in the border town and fled home.
Beitbridge East legislator Albert Nguluvhe yesterday said the family stays in his constituency.
“I received the report this morning (yesterday) that seven members from the same family have tested positive,” Nguluvhe said.
“The family has 14 members. I have been informed that the development came after one of their relatives, who were in quarantine after coming from South Africa, escaped and went home.
