What you need to know about COVID-19
The third case of COVID-19 has been confirmed in South Africa on Sunday.
There has been some panic among South Africans, with many people buying hand sanitizers, masks and multivitamins.
Bongani Bingwa speaks to Wits University vaccinology professor Shabir Madhi to give more insight on the coronavirus.
He says people need to be reflective when thinking about this virus.
The reason for panic at this point in time is that even though the virus has been around since December 2019, there isn't a total understanding in terms of how widespread the transmission of the virus has been. The number of people infected could be much higher than what has been identified at this point.Shabir Madhi, Vaccinology professor - Wits University
Much of the focus in terms of testing is geared towards individuals that are symptomatic, he says.
