According to Dr. Zweli Mkhize, health officials have recorded a worrying increase in Covid-19 cases across much of South Africa.

Particular concern

He announced that the provinces of particular concern were the Free State, Gauteng, Northern Cape and North West. However, he also said each province, with the notable exception of the Eastern Cape, has at least one district of concern.

Mkhize said that a number of districts were flagged by the national institute for communicable diseases as “under observation”, due to a rise in the 14-day average percentage change.

He said that, “Although some districts may have relatively low case incidences, the significant rise in percentage changes should be taken as a serious warning”.
