The Limpopo Command Council led by premier Chupu Mathabatha has today announce that the Covid -19 infection rate is declining steadily.
At its recent fort nightly meeting, it said the cumulative infection rate was 13 746 with a high recovery rate.
The number of recovery cases stood at 12 990 leaving only 499 active cases and unfortunately 257 deaths.
“We have reported one death over the past 24 hours,” said the statement from the command council.
The council also announced that it has received home affairs deaths which showed a decline from 16 638 to 15 265 in 2020.
“This is a positive indication that despite Covid -19 our death rate is still low,” said the CC statement.
However the statement warned against a casual attitude among residents.
If people continued in this way, a new wave of infections cannot be ruled out.
The department of education has also reported that schooling is running smoothly after the reopening and classes are being attended in line with differentiated time tabling model individual schools have opted for.
It also reported concerns about absenteeism as some people are in fear of Covid-19.
