In recent months, South Africa has had a particularly difficult time dealing with the virus. What was a clear decrease in the number of cases that became uncertain as infection cases began to rise again? People even thought Cyril Ramaphosa had made a big mistake by putting the country on level 1 lockdown since the number of cases appeared to be increasing too quickly.
The National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) today announced the identification of 201 additional COVID-19 cases in South Africa, bringing the total number of laboratory-confirmed cases to 2,912,346. This implies a 3.3 percent increase in positive. According to the National Department of Health, 29 more COVID-19-related deaths have been reported, bringing the total number of deaths to 88,346.
South Africa is claimed to have registered only 648 new illnesses in the last 24 hours, far less than the 1000 we are used to. The number of deaths has also decreased dramatically, with roughly 25 deaths registered in the last 24 hours.
The province of KwaZulu-Natal (28 percent) has the most new cases today, followed by Gauteng (22 percent ). Western Cape accounted for 16 percent of new cases; Eastern Cape accounted for 14 percent; Northern Cape accounted for 5 percent; Mpumalanga accounted for 4 percent; Free State and North West each accounted for 3 percent; and Limpopo accounted for 2%.
In the last 24 hours, there has been a 52 percent surge in hospital admissions. The table below shows a breakdown of COVID-19 admissions by sector.
The country of South Africa is currently waiting for President Cyril Ramaphosa to hold another family gathering. South Africa is expected to remain in level 1 based on the behavior of the cases during the last few days.
