Hospitalisations and deaths still increasing in the Western Cape        

I call on residents to continue playing their part and flatten the curve through the lifesaving behaviours or non-pharmaceutical interventions that we have learnt since the start of the pandemic.

These include washing and sanitizing our hands regularly, wearing our masks correctly, and avoiding gatherings and large crowds; while also ensuring that we have access to fresh air by opening doors and windows, where possible. 

At this stage, our province’s health platform shows us that: 

  • We are seeing approximately 2 300 new diagnoses each day;
  • Admissions are continuing to increase, particularly in the public sector, and we now have around 320 new admissions each day; and
  • Deaths are also sadly increasing, and we are seeing on average 75 deaths each day now.

Let’s play our part in flattening the curve so that we save lives and jobs in the Western Cape.
