By A Correspondent- Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’ was last week rushed to China for emergency medical checkups.
The Vice President’s visit sparked a health emergency at a luxury hotel after two members of his entourage tested positive for COVID-19.
Hundreds of hotel guests at the Legendale Hotel in Beijing were forced to quarantine on Thursday, although officials maintain that Chiwenga was not one of the positive cases.
Chiwenga (64), arrived in China aboard a private jet with four aides on 23 July to seek treatment for a “throat problem”, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Chiwenga – who is also the Minister of Health and Child Care – takes regular medical flights to China where he has been treated for an oesophageal health problem.
