Badnews In South Africa As 14 More People Were Reported Dead In The Last 24-48 Hours


As far as the Covid-19 virus is concerned, South Africa is far free. With many people preaching antivaccine sermon. South Africa's National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NICD) recorded 1,332 new cases of Covid-19 on Monday, with 14 more deaths in the past 24 to 48 hours, this equals 14 families in tears over the death of their loved ones and relatives.

Just yesterday, the Institute reported 1,332 new cases of Covid-19 identified in South Africa, bringing a total of 3,582,691 laboratory-confirmed cases and this was confirmed by the NICD. Gauteng, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa's most populous province, each accounted for the most cases in the country on Monday.

A total of 17,187 tests were carried out on Monday, more than 70% of which were conducted in the country's private sector. Monday's test data combined with new cases showed a positive test rate of 7.8%.

The WEF notes that the ravages of Covid-19 on the global economy are widening the gap between rich and poor. South Africa's testing behavior reflected a dip across the board on Monday, resulting in fewer cases being reported.

“Due to the ongoing review by the Ministry of National Health (NDoH), there may be a backlog in reported deaths from Covid-19. Today, the NDoH reported 88 deaths, 14 of which had occurred in the past 24 to 48 hours, the agency said.

Hospital admissions rose by 89 patients on Monday. However, the number of patients being treated is currently decreasing day by day. As of Friday, the NICD reported 6,892 currently treated patients and on Monday 6,387.

Meanwhile, the country has administered 78,888 vaccines in the past 24 hours. Most of the vaccinations were in Gauteng (24,471), KwaZulu-Natal (11,942) and the Western Cape.
