30 more people die of COVID-19

South Africa says it doesn’t meet WHO criteria to lift lockdown

Health Minister Zweli Mkhize released a national breakdown of South Africa's COVID-19 deaths as well as the new virus figures last night.

The youngest victim of COVID-19 in South Africa is a two-day-old baby, who died after being born prematurely to a coronavirus positive mother.

Statistics South Africa's (Stats SA's) Wave 2 survey on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on employment and income in South Africa shows that 8.1% of respondents reported that they had lost their jobs or had to close their businesses. It is important to appreciate the complexities of the underlying condition of prematurity, the minister said.

"Novartis is supporting WHO to engage communities across Africa including health workers, women and youth".

Mkhize said over 525 000 tests had now been conducted since March, with over 18 500 tests being done in the past 24 hours.

The Northern Cape has recorded 37 confirmed cases, 0.2% of the total cases.
