South Africa is running out of hospital beds due to Covid-19

South Africa is again starting to experience the shortage of hospital beds due to Covid-19 infections which are increasing rapidly. It has been confirmed that the Covid-19 third wave is within the borders of South Africa.

Few weeks ago, president of the republic of South Africa Mr Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa addressed the nation and decided together with his government to place the country under adjusted level 2 of Covid-19 regulations.

This was initiated to try by all means to stop the spread of Covid-19 but itbis unfortunate because that seems not working because sincce the president of the republic of South Africa addressed the nation, numbers of Covid-19 infection rates are increasing rapidly.

Already in Gauteng province there are more than 20 schools which have been closed down due to amid of Covid-19 with some learners who passed on due to Covid-19 infections.

Economic Freedom Fighters suggested that schools must be close. Two members of the Ministerial Advisory Committee (MAC) on Covid-19 say the high infection rate, coupled with the low hospital bed capacity, could be reason enough to move to an adjusted Level 3 lockdown.
