Second Wave of Covid-19 Infections = New Rules for South Africa?

South Africa's economic capital, Gauteng, has seen a 6% spike in Covid-19 infections after the easing of restrictions across the country. The increase, which was "noted with concern" by the provincial health department, was attributed to, among other factors, non-adherence to non-pharmaceutical interventions by some members of the public, said the province's Acting Health MEC Jacob Mamabolo. Coming after the country's downward trend in Covid-19 infections, Health Minister Zweli Mkhize said a possible resurgence would require a new approach.
