Gauteng looks to be heading to take over as the COVID-19 epicentre in South Africa. Now, its important to find out the latest information, part of which is contained in the National Institute of Communicable Diseases’ Sentinel Report. The NICD reported on 10700 COVID-19 Admissions in 9 provinces. The report will help authorities assess how the health care system is coping under the strain of COVID-19. The information is also used for future modelling to deal with the pandemic. Joining us now to discuss this, is Prof Marc Mendelson, who is the Head of Infectious Diseases & HIV Medicine at the University of Cape Town, and he is also part of the COVID-19 Ministerial Advisory Committee.
