CORONAVIRUS IN CAPE TOWN: THE SITUATION NOW
The Minister of Health, Dr Zweli Mkhize, has confirmed that there are 1,380 confirmed positive cases of coronavirus in South Africa (only 27 more than yesterday) and the country has had 50 full recoveries confirmed with negative test results. Dr Mkhize has, however, warned against complacency. 

I ascribe this reduction in the rate of increase due to: closing the borders, enforcing quarantine on inbound travelers, lockdown has slowed internal transmission by reducing the spread during large gatherings and overcrowded transport routes eg Trains, buses and taxis pic.twitter.com/T1xPDS4bhr
