Dr Manangazira said they were aware of her arrival. “She was in Wuhan, and passed through Guangzhou, where she was certified to be Covid-19 negative and has a certificate to show for it.

“When she arrived we were aware that she was coming because the Chinese authorities had alerted us and we took the precautionary steps of putting her in isolation.
