COVID-19 cases in South Africa are now just below 35,000
COVID-19 cases in the country are nearing 35,000. South Africa has now recorded 705 deaths and 34,357 cases from the virus. The Western Cape accounts for more than 65 per cent of cases with over 22,000 infections. The province also has the highest death toll at 525. Testing is continuing with 740,000 tests conducted.
