In South Africa, about 1,000 new cases of Coronavirus were confirmed every day in early November, and the number began to surge. Beginning on November 25, there were more than 3,000 new cases per day in South Africa, and it even climbed to 4,000 on December 2.
At present, the country’s second rebound of the pandemic is mainly concentrated in Cape Town, the Garden Route and Mandela Bay. However, the South African government and relevant experts are currently discussing which areas are high-risk areas.
