Areas of concern are Somerset West, Gordon’s Bay, the City Bowl, Sea Point, Milnerton, and Durbanville, says Dr. Keith Cloete.

Covid-19 admissions and deaths in the Western Cape are increasing slightly, according to Western Cape Head of Health, Dr. Keith Cloete.

The Western Cape is seeing about 180 new infections per day, a 39% week-on-week rise, and the seventh consecutive day of increases.

"We have now officially gone into a resurgence,” said Cloete.
