The latest confirmed number of Covid-19 cases in Kouga is seven.
The seventh positive case was identified during the Department of Health’s mass screening and testing campaign in KwaNomzamo from 9 to 13 April.
More than 9 500 residents were screened during the outreach and just more than 100 referred for testing.
KwaNomzamo was prioritised for the campaign after five residents tested positive for the coronavirus.
There are now six cases in Humansdorp and one in St Francis Bay.
The DA led Kouga Municipality and other role players like the South African Police, Department of Health and the Public have all played a vital role in flattening the curve thus far in our region.
