COVID-19| More bad news for South Africans this morning.



1 367 new COVID-19 cases have been reported to the National Institute of Communicable Diseases, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 2 898 888. This implies a rise of 8.6% in positive cases.

Another 201 COVID-19-related deaths have been reported, increasing the total number of deaths to 87,417. A total of 17 603 913 tests were carried out.


John Steenhuisen, the head of the Democratic Alliance (DA), has expressed his displeasure with the United Kingdom's decision to place South Africa on the red list due to uncertainties over the number of COVID-19 infections. He claims that President Cyril Ramaphosa is to blame for the delayed vaccination race.

“Being on the red list will make it much more difficult for us to recruit travelers and provide some light to our tourism business, which has been absolutely crushed as a result of COVID-19. Maybe we need to take a step back and look at why we're still on the red list, and part of it is because we have a very poor vaccination rate, which must be blamed on the Ramaphosa administration, which arrived way too late in the vaccine race.”
