Health Minister Zweli Mkhize announced on Monday that there are 402 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus in South Africa.

This is the biggest daily increase of confirmed coronavirus cases in the country – up 128 from 274 on Sunday.

Apart from the big jump in coronavirus cases, the Northern Cape has also reported its first official infection.

The rapid increase in infections means that many people are eagerly awaiting President Cyril Ramaphosa’s address this evening on measures to mitigate the impact of COVID-19.

The Gauteng Provincial Government has also started to close public facilities to help stop the spread of the virus.

The closures include museums, art centres, swimming pools, braai and picnic spots, and camping sites.

Other closed facilities in the province include community halls, stadiums, sports fields, and nature reserves.
