Premier Winde calls on residents to be vigilant amid increase in COVID-19 infections 

I am concerned by the increase in COVID-19 infections in the province and I call on residents to take every step to keep themselves and their loved ones safe. 

According to the Resurgence Monitor, which is available from the Western Cape Government’s COVID-19 dashboard, we continue to see a week-on-week percentage increase in new cases at over 20% for the last 12 days.

The number of active infectious cases has increased by over 60%, from 3000 to 5000 in just under three weeks. 

It’s up to each of us to prevent the onset of the third wave and flatten the curve. We can do this by practicing the important and lifesaving behaviours that we have learnt over the past year. 

This means we should continue to wash and sanitise our hands regularly, wear our masks correctly when in public, and maintain a safe social distance. 

It also means that we should avoid non-essential gatherings, and if we must meet, to keep it short, outside and small to prevent transmission. 

By being vigilant and taking the necessary measures to prevent COVID-19 we can slow the spread and protect ourselves and our loved ones. 

With vaccines arriving, let’s not give up now. Let’s stay strong, and stay safe, so that we keep on saving lives.
