JOHANNESBURG, May 13 (Reuters) - Lesotho recorded its first case of COVID-19 on Thursday, the health ministry said.

In a statement, the ministry said it had conducted 81 tests for COVID-19 from travellers from South Africa and Saudi Arabia, of which one was positive.

The kingdom, nestled in a South African mountain range, had so far been spared the coronavirus that has affected other countries in southern Africa.
