President Cyril Ramaphosa on Monday said the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, and Gauteng were leading the second wave of COVID-19 infections in the country.

In his address to the nation, Ramaphosa said most of the new infections were among young people, particularly those in the age group of 15 to 19 years.

He said the daily average of COVID-19 deaths had increased by nearly 50% over the last seven days from just over 100 deaths a day to just over 150 deaths.

The president said that gatherings, especially social gatherings, and parties, were the largest source of outbreaks.
