The City of Cape Town says its once again appealing to residents not to be complacent to avoid a second wave of COVID-19 infections in Cape Town.
It says while the city has recorded more than 57 000 recoveries, new cases and fatalities continue to be recorded.
The City's Mayoral Committee member
for Community Services and Health, Zahied Badroodien says there has been slowdown in the number of cases reported in recent weeks but it does not mean that the pandemic is over: "We h ave seen a definite downturn in our COVID-19 statistics, but now more than ever we need increased vigilance.
I would like to turn the public's attention to the fact that several countries around the world have had to reintroduce tougher restrictions once more, due to secondary waves of infection.
This includes countries in Europe and Asia, as well as cities in Australia.
These serve as a cautionary tale that we cannot afford to let our guard down, and we have to continue abiding by the health protocols advanced to
mitigate the risk of exposure and transmission." "https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p526x296/117115007_3407037889348571_6619777846459462628_o.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=masKp9Fu6KkAX9zcHIY&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=6&oh=944229b2e1e8e3b9303c63c95afeb589&oe=5F4E5EDA"
