Presidency confirms third wave

Published on

The presidency has called for unity and cooperation in tackling the third wave of COVID-19 infections, as the government continues with its much-criticised vaccination rollout plans.

On Monday, 21 June 2021, the presidency highlighted that the third wave of coronavirus infections is upon us. The rise in confirmed positive cases has seen the country plunge into a dangerous third wave of infections. President Cyril Ramaphosa has emphasised the importance of citizens doing their part to fight this new wave.

The past few weeks have seen the spike in new infections exceeding the tens of thousands each day. This means that infections have increased more than fifteen-fold from the last low point. The president has confirmed that Gauteng has been hit the hardest at the moment, with the most confirmed cases. Hospitals in the province are reaching capacity and healthcare workers are said to be exhausted.

The presidency has urged citizens to support and work hand-in-hand with the government to ensure a smooth vaccination rollout campaign. The president has also encouraged everyone to lend a helping hand in registering for vaccinations. In light of the growing frustrations on the slow response in vaccinations, the presidency has promised that the government plans to vaccinate half a million educators, as they work through social contact with children for the education sector.
