Health Department reports increase in COVID-19 recovery rate

Published on

The Department of Health has revealed that the country’s COVID-19 recovery rate has increased to 92.6 percent, however, that does not meant that the country is out of the woods yet.

The Department of Health took to Twitter on Wednesday, 18 November 2020, to share the latest COVID-19 statistics. According to the post, despite the continued increase in the number of infections, the recovery rate is still satisfactory and stands at 92.6 percent.

However, the recovery rate does not mean that the country is out of the woods yet, as there are growing concerns of a possible second wave. The department recently reported a concerning increase in the growing infections in the Eastern Cape and Western Cape provinces. This has been a concern as the festive season is approaching, with fears of people disregarding the regulations during that period.

Despite the high numbers, the department has not come out and suggested nor endorsed the possibility of a second wave and going back to stricter lockdown restrictions. However, it is advised that people continue to maintain social distancing and adhere to the rules and regulations.
