Covid-19 cases rise to 3,267 in 24 hours in South Africa

By Chinenye Festus:-
South Africa is the sub-Saharan African country that has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.
Africa’s biggest country recorded 3,267 cases of the novel coronavirus on in 24 hours on Thursday.
This is the highest number the country has ever recorded since the pandemic broke out in that country.
South Africa now has a total of 40,792 infections, 56 death tolls, and a total of 848 fatalities… the health ministry revealed. Half of the cases were recorded in Western Cape Region because of the decline in health services.
Recall that President Cyril Ramaphosa on March 27 imposed a lockdown in the country which was aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus. The lockdown limited people’s freedom of movement and slowed down its already recessed economy.
Although the President has eased the lockdown gradually, strict measures are put in place so that most of the economic activities will kick start.
