Daily Covid-19 cases in South Africa continues to rise

The number of Covid-19 cases in South Africa continues to rise, with a daily average of 3,838 infections last week, which was not recorded since August 16.
However, according to the international parameters established by WHO (a sustained increase of 20% over a seven-day period), that rise cannot yet be described nationally as a second wave of the pandemic.
According to the daily report by the Ministry of Health, the country has accumulated some 814,565 infections since March, 4,116 of which were reported during the last 24 hours.
About 744,780 patients recovered and 22,206 died of the disease. Active cases totaled 47,579 in South Africa.
Until Sunday, a total of 110,166 people had been admitted to hospitals after contracting Covid-19, according to data provided to the National Institute for Communicable Diseases by 616 hospitals.
Some 85,063 patients were discharged and 18,991 died while they were admitted to hospitals.
The Ministry informed that about 139 people died of the disease in a day.
