She adds, at the moment only four people at the quarantine. Two pilots at the King Solomon Hotel. One person at SA quarantine station and one foreign ship crew member at Pacific Casino – this person needed hospitalisation so after getting medical treatment the person is now serving mandatory quarantine period. He will return today if his vessel comes.
