South Africa now dealing with COVID-19 reinfections - report
Health Minister Zweli Mkhize gave South Africans an update on the current state in which the Department of Health is handling the COVID-19 pandemic, as the country continues to grapple with the virus.
Eyewitness News reporter Mia Lindeque discussed with Ray White on Afternoon Drive on the new developments in which Mkhize announced when he was addressing nation this today.
She says the new data that has been given shows that there has been a little bit of a slowdown in the daily infection rate especially in provinces that have had a large number such as the Western Cape, Gauteng and the Eastern Cape.

Lindeque says according to experts this means the Department of Health might have found a way to contain the surge.
