#Covid19: Infected KZN businessman arrested after returning to work
National police spokesperson Vish Naidoo is quoted as saying a case of attempted murder is being investigated against the 52-year-old by Ladysmith police.
On his return to South Africa after travelling to various countries the suspect was instructed to self-quarantine after testing positive, but allegedly defied the order.
He allegedly continued with his business and in doing so disregarded the instructions by a doctor thus allegedly contravening regulations in terms of the National Disaster Act pertaining to the Covid-19 virus. The 52-year-old suspect was arrested and removed to a hospital where he is currently being treated.Vish Naidoo, Spokesperson - SAPS
