Coronavirus infections hit 150 mark

The number of COVID-19 (coronavirus) infections have increased to 150 – up by 34 new cases.

But the announcement by Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma came with a silver lining – South Africa now has its first case of a fully patient who has fully recovered from the deadly virus.

Dlamini-Zuma also confirmed that a 2-year-old boy from the Western Cape who had travelled internationally is the youngest confirmed case in South Africa.

President Cyril Ramphosa on Sunday declared the spread of the Covid-19 virus a national state of disaster.

Prevention and prohibition of gatherings has since been announced by government.

In order to contain the spread of COVID-19, a gathering of over 100 people is prohibited and the assembly of more than 50 persons at premises where liquor is sold and consumed is prohibited.
