Mozambique's opposition party leader dies from suspected Coronavirus


Mozambique’s opposition party leader, Daviz Simango, has died in South Africa.

Mr Simango had been evacuated to South Africa on 13 February.

A few days earlier, his wife tested positive for coronavirus, but when Mr Simango himself was tested, the result came back negative.

His brother Lutero Simango told journalists at the time that his brother was having trouble breathing and so it was thought advisable to send him to South Africa for further treatment.

He had been feeling ill for about a week at that point.

Mr Simango was the mayor of Beira on the coast, north of the capital Maputo.
