Klerksdorp Record, Klerksdorp - Covid-19 infections are increasing in the NW, prompting the hospitals to raise alarm.

The province has been experiencing a spike in Covid-19 cases in the past seven days with an average of 300 cases reported daily. The MEC for North West Health, Madoda Sambatha raised concerns over the increase of daily positive cases across the province.

“It would seem our people have let their guard down. People are beginning to live as normal; if we are back to normality. We see this in shopping complexes, taxi ranks, and domestic activities like funerals that are over-crowded. This is likely to add to more increases in the number of new cases,” he warned.

He urged the public to avoid unnecessary travel, to always wear masks when in public, to ensure social distancing and regularly washing of hands or sanitising.
