Sekhukhune DCC pleased with slow Covid-19 infection rate

GROBLERSDAL – Executive Mayor Stanley Ramaila, Sekhukhune District Covid-19 Command Council Chairperson, called on people to comply with Covid-19 regulations for their safety.

Ramaila made the call during this week’s command council meeting in which it was reported that Sekhukhune was at the path of flattening the curve against coronavirus.

The DCC heard that was mainly due to the fact that Covid-19 related deaths still stood at eight and the total number of positive cases was 1662 while active cases were 587 with 1067 recoveries on Tuesday, 04 August 2020.

The council also heard that 214 frontline workers tested positive for Covid-19 and that 18 were in self isolation and 196 recovered.

With regard to rising infections that were of concern at Thorncliff, Magareng, Mototolo and Hellena mines in Fetakgomo-Tubatse local municipality during last week’s meeting, it was discovered that all were complying with health protocols to curb the spread of coronavirus. Therefore, the rise in positive cases was attributed to community infections.

“We want to make a clarion call to all our people to the effect that; they need to comply with Covid-19 regulations for their safety, not to please government. We urge those who are complying to continue doing so for their sake and those around them,” said Ramaila.

The Chairperson said they have worryingly heard that soccer tournaments were still continuing in the district and urged police to clamp down on them.

He concluded that in the main, they were pleased with the slow infection rate and wished that people could keep that up.
