Johannesburg – KwaZulu Natal Premier, Sihle Zikalala, is concerned about the increasing number of frontline workers contracting Covid-19.
The premier is, however, reassuring residents that there is enough capacity to deal with the surge of infections.
“We have bed capacity. We still have the capacity in terms of staff. We are also looking to ensure that we look after those who get infected so that they recover as soon as possible.”
Meanwhile, South Africa has set a new daily Covid-19 record with 21, 832 new cases.
This is the first time the country has surpassed 20,000 for new infections in a single day.
The Covid-19 death toll is now at 31,368.
