The Western Cape has recorded 13 additional deaths since Friday 9 April, bringing the total number of COVID-19 related deaths in the province to 11 509. We send our condolences to their loved ones at this time.

Additional data is available on the Western Cape COVID-19 data dashboard which also features active cases per sub-district, active cases per 100 000 and 7-day moving averages. Access the data dashboard here: https://coronavirus.westerncape.gov.za/covid-19-dashboard

Health care workers infected with COVID-19 in the Western Cape continue to drop sharply:

In December 2020, during the height of the second wave, over 1971 health care workers were infected with the virus. This dropped to its lowest level since the pandemic started in March last year, with just 38 infections last month.

One week into the month of April, and there have been just 2 infections amongst health care workers so far, bringing the current number of active cases among health care workers to just 16.

We can already see the success that the rollout of this programme has had to date. The Provincial Department of Health not only attributes this success to the low number of infections overall in the province, but also to the fact that thousands of health care workers have been vaccinated in the Western Cape so far. 

Vaccines are safe and effective, and that is why ensuring we vaccinate as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, remains a priority of the Western Cape Government.
