Health officials in South Africa record a drop in new COVID-19 infections.

 

The health ministry recorded 792 new cases in the last 24-hour cycle, which is a drop from the 1 429 new cases recorded the previous day.

 

Health officials warn that the decline in infections should not be seen as a free pass for South Africans to be complacent.

 

According to the latest figures, the total number of cases since the start of the pandemic is now at 1 504 588 million.

 

In Gauteng, the number of active cases stands at over 4 000.
