South Africa now has 709 confirmed cases of Covid-19, up from 554 cases the previous day, health minister Zweli Mkhize said on Wednesday.

The rise represents a 28 percent day-on-day change, compared with the previous 38 percent day-on-day increase.

"The largest increases will be Gauteng (province) with 64 overnight," Mkhize said on public broadcaster SABC.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Monday night announced a nationwide 21-day lockdown from midnight on Thursday to try and curb the spread of Covid-19.
