Media Statement
20 November 2020
As of today, the cumulative number of detected COVID-19 cases is 762 763 with over 3 105 new cases identified since the last report. We have breached the 3000 mark for new daily cases for the first time since 21 August 2020 and on this day the positivity rate was 15%. We are therefore also concerned that today the national positivity rate is 12% for the second time this week. Ideally, the positivity rate should be 10% or less and we have been able to maintain this since 6 September 2020. Of note the Eastern Cape comprises 1 691 of these new cases which is 54,4% of new cases.
