In South Africa, there is bad news See What Happened as 23 More People Were Confirmed Dead.



President Cyril Ramaphosa appeared sick earlier this week as he addressed the nation and fellow party members. After a fit of coughing, it appears that the President is infected with Covid-19 once more. As of Tuesday, fewer than 3,200 new Covid-19 infections had been reported in South Africa, with 23 deaths in the previous 24 to 48 hours. This translates to 23 families in excruciating pain, and yet many people continue to believe that the virus is a hoax and that vaccination is dangerous.

IOL.CO.ZA is the source for this information.

The Institute recently reported that 3,197 new cases of Covid-19 have been discovered in South Africa, bringing the total number of laboratory-confirmed cases to 3,585,888. The National Institute of Infectious Diseases has confirmed this (NICD).

The majority of new infections were reported in Gauteng (898), KwaZulu-Natal (483) and the Western Cape (460), in that order, on Tuesday. Limpopo cases increased by 421 on Tuesday compared to Monday, according to NICD data (85). In the last 24 hours, a total of 36,216 tests were performed, indicating a consistent shift in South African testing behavior since Monday.

The agency reported an 8.8 percent positive rate after accounting for Tuesday's total number of tests and new infections. There may be a backlog in reported COVID-19 deaths due to the ongoing review by the Ministry of National Health (NDoH).

The NDoH reported 132 deaths yesterday, 23 of which occurred in the last 24 to 48 hours, and the actual number of deaths could be higher. In the last 24 hours, 179 more people have been admitted to the hospital. However, the number of patients being treated each day is decreasing.

Per day, the total number of patients admitted to the hospital is:

6387 (Monday)

6 284

In the meantime, the number of vaccinations was up on Tuesday. According to the NICD, 82,572 vaccines have been administered in the last 24 hours, with Gauteng continuing to administer the most vaccines of any province.

New SA cases by province:

Gauteng (Gauteng): 898

483 KwaZulu Christmas

460 West Cape

421 Limpopo

Mpumalanga has a population of 253 people.

235 East Cape
