South Africa now has four new coronavirus deaths bringing the total to 58 people who have succumbed to the virus to date.

There are currently 3300 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with over 1000 recoveries.

Gauteng still has the highest number of people testing positive for the virus at 1170 followed by the Western Cape at 940 and KwaZulu-Natal with 639 cases.

Health minister, Zweli Mkhize, says there are 43 un-allocated cases.

Meanwhile the World Health Organisation says easing restrictions is not the end of the coronavirus pandemic in any country.

There are more than 2,4 million infections worldwide, with more than 166 000 deaths.

WHO head, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, says ending the epidemic will require a sustained effort on the part of individuals, communities and governments to continue suppressing and controlling the virus.

He adds that they are adjusting their strategy all the time on the latest available evidence.
