As has been the case in recent months, as we head towards the weekend, the number of new daily infections for COVID-19 in South Africa is on the rise. This as 18 555 new cases have been reported over the past 24 hours, up from the previous day and resulting in a total number of infections to date of 1 278 303, according to the latest figures from the National Department of Health (NDoH).

Along with detailing the infections, other testing metrics see more than 7.35 million tests having been administered in the country to date, as well as 1 030 930 recoveries also being recorded. The recovery rate now sits at 80.64 percent as a result.
