Update on suspected coronavirus patient who disappeared from Wilkins hospital in Zimbabwe


A 26-year-old Thai national who on Sunday evaded health officials at Wilkins Hospital in Harare, Zimbabwe, before he could be tested for COVID-19, has surrendered himself to hospital authorities.

Harare City’s Health Director, Dr Prosper Chonzi told ZTN that the man is being kept until his results come out. Said Chonzi:

“We are keeping him until we get results. Physically his temperature is normal and he doesn’t have any symptoms. The police are happy that he is now back at Wilkins Hospital.”

Following the man’s escape from the hospital on Sunday, health officials reported the matter to Marlborough Police Station and police officers had launched a manhunt before the suspect resurfaced at Wilkins.
