South Africa registers more than one million Covid-19 cases

South Africa has become the first country on the continent to register more than one million Covid-19 cases.

It comes just days after authorities confirmed that a new, faster-spreading, coronavirus variant had been detected.

Some hospitals and medical centres have reported a huge rise in admissions, putting a heavy strain on resources.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to announce tougher restrictions to prevent the virus from spreading further.

The latest report was announced on Sunday by South Africa’s Health Minister, Zweli Mkhize.

The country has now confirmed 1,004,413 Covid-19 infections and 26,735 deaths since the outbreak began in March.

A new coronavirus variant – known as 501.V2 – is believed to be driving the surge in infections.

It was identified by a network of South African scientists in the Eastern Cape province and then rapidly spread to other parts of the country.
