Western Cape good at fighting Covid fires


Western Cape Premier Alan Winde has reiterated his stance that the province does not support further lockdowns in any form. He was speaking in his weekly digicon as the Cape sees a resurgence in Covid-19 cases. Winde says his government will be using five principles to guide its decisions through this period. It includes protecting the healthcare system to prevent it from being overwhelmed and using scientific and evidence-based interventions. On Tuesday, the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) met to discuss the latest increases in Covid-19 cases across the country, and how best to curb the spread of the virus into the festive season. Of the recommendations was that localised lockdowns be implemented. Header image: Radio 786

The Western Cape is seeing a similar trend to its first Covid-19 wave. Premier Alan Winde says that this is evident in the expected number of deaths in the province. Over a one-week period, the Western Cape has seen Covid-related deaths increasing 87 to 152. Premier has reminded the public that the virus once again picks up momentum, it will become an uncontrollable, unmanageable ‘second wave’.
