Covid-19| Fourth wave expected to come as soon as next month to this province

Covid-19 is still here, and it looks like it is here to stay. The virus has been in our lives for almost 2 years, it has turned lives upside down. Everyone wants it to end as soon as possible so that life can return to normal.

After 3 waves of the virus in South Africa, a fourthwave is predicted to come very soon, there is no time to relax. Right now cases recorded daily are low and the positivity rate is still down.

The past few weeks the number of daily recorded cases in the country have been very low, which means that the risk of infection is also currently low. This may be good news but the reality is that the virus is not gone, it is still a part of our lives.

The country is on high alert knowing that the fourth wave is coming soon, The command council predicts that the fourth wave is likely to happen anywhere between November and January.

The province of Gauteng is likely to be the first to be hit by the third wave, normally because it has the highest population in the country. By December the fourth wave could have hit almost every province in the country.

December is festive time and this is a time were people have gatherings all the time, it is obvious that the virus will spread rapidly.

The provinces of Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal and Western Cape have been the ones affected by the previous 3 waves of the virus.
