There are positive early signs that South Africa may be over the peak of our second wave much sooner than anticipated.

Daily cases have dropped 25% to near 14,000 a day. South Africa’s positivity rate has dropped to 24% from 29% last week.

“Last week we had 16,000 people in hospital which steadily grew to 17,200 during the week but encouragingly we’ve just started to see hospital admissions drop for the first time in a long time,” said analyst Kuben Nair.

“On a weekly basis the admissions have risen from 16,000 to 16,900 but the last few days of declines is a positive trend we hope to see continue.”
