Health Minister Zweli Mkhize announced late last night that a further 3,370 new infections had been reported in the past 24 hours, bringing the cumulative number of infections to 781,941.

Mkhize says 21,378 people have now died, while 722,876 people have already recovered from the coronavirus.

Deaths per province:

  • Gauteng: 5 004
  • Western Cape: 4 601
  • KwaZulu-Natal: 3 328
  • Limpopo: 499
  • Mpumalanga: 614
  • Northwest: 549
  • Northern Cape: 306

For both the Western and Eastern Cape, an approach is needed that will curb the spread of the coronavirus.

“Those restrictions will be useful so that the whole country is not affected,” said Dr. Health Minister Zweli Mkhize said in Port Elizabeth on Friday afternoon.
