“We also indicate that the current total deaths in Limpopo is 33 (not 44 as reported yesterday). This was a data interpretation error which has been corrected. Reallocation has since been done and we have confirmed the current total with the province. Therefore, the total number of COVID-19 related deaths today is 3 720,” noted Mkhize.

The number of recoveries is 113 061, which translates to a recovery rate of 47,4%.
