The death toll in the Western Cape increased by 48 on June 16, bringing the total number of deaths in the province to 1156. This accounts for a large percentage of South Africa’s total number of deaths.

Premier Alan Winde confirmed the province has 12 155 active cases of COVID-19, with a total of 43602 confirmed cases and 30291 recoveries. The Hospital of Hope has admitted 45 people since it opened and 15 have already been discharged. The Khayelitsha hospital currently has 15 admissions.

In his statement he added that most people who contract COVID-19 will recover without the need for hospitalisation.

“A small percentage of people will require hospital care. Our ICU admissions currently account for under 2% of all active cases. The majority of people who become seriously ill have been over the age of 55 or have one or more comorbidities including hypertension, diabetes, HIV, and heart, lung and kidney ailments,” said Winde.
