The number of new daily infections for COVID-19 in South Africa has slowly been increasing over the past week, with concerns also growing about any potential second wave of cases appearing over the festive period.

As it stands now, both elements remain unaddressed.

Looking at the latest figures from the National Department of Health (NDoH), 2 270 new cases have been reported over the past 24 hours. This may not seem all too high, but on Friday evening the number of cases peaked to 3 105, which is one of the highest totals seen the country moved to alert level 1 lockdown.

Consequently, the total number of cases for COVID-19 now stands at 767 679, with 710 099 recoveries also being reported. The latter has resulted in the recovery rate sitting firm at 92.5 percent.

Unfortunately, however, 58 new fatalities have been recorded. This pushes the total number of deaths related to COVID-19 to 20 903.
