According to a press release from the Western Cape Premier, Alan Winde, there are now 23 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in the Western Cape, with nine being cared for in the high-care unit.
As we start to see an increase in local transmission cases, we expect to experience additional pressure on our health facilities and health workers.
We again urge all our residents to stay home and abide by the lock-down. By doing this, you can help flatten the curve and save many lives.
If you are feeling sick, it is important that you stay home and call our hotline (021 928 4102) for advice on what to do next.Alan Winde
