Fifty Reported COVID-19 Recoveries in Cape Town


According to reports, 50 people who previously tested positive for COVID-19 in Cape Town, have recovered and their period of self-isolation has been lifted.

The premier of the Western Cape, Alan Winde, says the 50 completed 14 days of self-isolation and can now, in accordance with the guidelines set out by the National Institute for Communicable Diseases, come out of isolation.

They will still have to obey the 21-day lockdown laws, like other members of the public, and so can only leave their homes for essentials like medical care, food, cash and to collect grants.

The latest number of confirmed cases in South Africa are now 1353 and the number of coronavirus-related deaths has risen to five.

Gauteng, the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal still account for the majority of cases in the country.
