Another 183 people have died of Covid-19-linked illness

Another 183 deaths linked to Covid-19 have been reported, with the Eastern and Western Cape, which are experiencing resurgences in some place, bearing the brunt.

The Department of Health said 82 people died in the Eastern Cape, 20 in the Free State, 11 in Gauteng, 13 in KwaZulu-Natal, seven in the Northern Cape and 50 in the Western Cape.

This means 22 432 people are confirmed to have died of Covid-19-related illnesses.

The department said there were 46 385 active cases and 753 072 recoveries.

 

Ministers' performance agreements finally signed and published

The performance agreements President Cyril Ramaphosa signed with each minister are available for public perusal - about nine months after Ramaphosa first said it would be concluded.

In his State of the Nation Address in February, Ramaphosa announced that each minister will be expected to sign a performance agreement.

These agreements – which are based on the targets contained in the Medium-Term Strategic Framework – will be made public, so that the people of South Africa can hold those who they elected into office to account.

 

City of Cape Town to crack down on alcohol non-compliance during festive season       

The City of Cape Town will be closely eyeing liquor outlets this festive season, as alcohol-related trauma incidents could place an unnecessary burden on the city's hospitals amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The City's Safety and Security and Community Services and Health Directorates held a briefing addressing the City's 2020/21 festive season preparedness plan, discussing new implementations that would be taken to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Cape Town mayco member JP Smith said operational plans would be put in place for big days such as New Year's Eve.
