Premier, Sihle Zikalala, has called for calm following hoax reports about the corona virus in the province.
He says with KZN being home to one of the biggest entry points which is the Durban Port, has been beset by a number of hoaxes, suspicions and other forms of speculation.
Zikalala has reiterated that up to this point, there has not been a single confirmed case in the Province.
Meanwhile Health MEC, Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu, has also released a statement refuting as false, misleading and irresponsible reports that two cases of the virus have been confirmed in the province.
Simelane Zulu says the department can confidently state that there are no confirmed cases, adding that even with the two cases in question neither of the patients presented with the symptoms after 14 days of the incubation period for the corona virus.
