Total Deaths and Recoveries

Regrettably, we report 188 more COVID-19 related deaths: 3 from Eastern Cape 1 from KwaZulu-Natal, 2 from Gauteng, 4 from Western Cape and 178 from the Free State. This brings the total number of COVID-19 related deaths to 16 586.

There has been a two-week delay in the reporting of Free State deaths as the province collated data from the various districts and verified this against Home Affairs Data. This is part of efforts to improve the quality of data by aligning information from facilities with Home Affairs statistics. Data from postmortem swabs also had to be collated and verified. This is in line with the recommendations of the Medical Research Council. The data is now up to date.

We extend our condolences to the loved ones of the departed and thank the healthcare workers that treated the deceased patients.

Our recoveries now stand at 604 478 which translates to a recovery rate of 90%
