In response to Minister of Health, Dr. Zweli Mkhize’s warning about the second wave of coronavirus, Limpopo Health MEC, Dr. Phophi Ramathuba and her provincial team assembled in a war room to monitor the province’s current COVID-19 situation and plan to fight the expected leap.
Dr. Mkhize has warned of a second wave of Covid-19 if South Africans do not change their behaviour.
He said that although the data showed the number of coronavirus infections in South Africa gradually slowing down, he added that we are not out of risk yet.
"While the Covid-19 wave could end soon, a second wave could emerge if residents became complacent," said Dr. Mkhize.
