Gauteng has seen a significant reduction in COVID-19 cases over the past two weeks, according to the Gauteng Command Council. The committee gave an update on the province’s COVID-19 response on Friday.

“We think a number of cases went up during December and early January because of the festive season and increased mobility and inter-provincial travel,” says Mary Kawonga from the Gauteng Command Council. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 death toll in South Africa has surpassed 43,000.
