Sekhukhune DCC warns of rapid increase In Covid-19 infections.


The Sekhukhune COVID-19 District Command Council (DCC) has warned local of increase of a spike in Covid-19 cases.

The DCC recently held its weekly meeting which comprises representatives from sector departments such as Health, Education, Transport, the district municipality and all local municipalities in Sekhukhune.

The DCC was briefed about ongoing infection cases and interventions in the district.

As of June 29, there had been 87 active cases in the district (47 in Fetakgomo-Tubatse Local Municipality, 31 in Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality, eight in Makhuduthamaga Local Municipality and one in Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality).

The DCC noted, “Considering the expected upsurge of COVID-19 infections in the coming weeks, we are calling on one and all in our communities to consider voluntarily putting themselves under restrictions similar to the previous alert level 5 of the lockdown, unless if they’re an essential service provider/worker or have an emergency reason to be out in the public. “

The DCC indicated that, unless extraordinary precautions are taken against the dreaded virus, locals must brace themselves for a rapid increase of infections, similar to what had recently transpired in Italy, Brazil and the United States of America.

In a period of two weeks, infections in Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality jumped from 1 to 33.

Amongst the hotspots in the SDM is the areas of Dennilton, Elandsdoorn, Tafelkop, Motetema, Ga-Moloi, Burgersfort, Praktiseer, Driekop and mining operations in the Eastern limb of the Bushveld Complex.

The DCC is urged community members to avoid going out in public unnecessarily.
