The NDoH has shared the latest COVID-19 statistics, revealing a 95 percent recovery rate, despite the fears of a possible third wave.
The National Department of Health (NDoH) took to Twitter on Monday, 5 April 2021, to share the latest COVID-19 statistics. The post revealed that the country’s total COVID-19 deaths stood at 52 995 at that point. Moreover, the department reported the cumulative recovery rate as 1 478 088. In total, the number of COVID-19 cases recorded stood at 1 552 416 on the day.
The release of the latest statistics is encouraging, considering the fears of a resurgence and imminent third wave. Ahead of the Easter weekend, President Cyril Ramaphosa implemented contingencies and stricter regulations in order to avoid a possible increase in infections.
The post did not share the latest number of vaccinated frontline workers, as part of phase one of the Sisonke vaccine rollout programme. The programme is set to vaccinate 1.5 million frontline workers by the end of the month, in order to move on to phase two of the rollout programme.
