The number of cases of Covid-19 in SA has risen to 116. According to the health ministry, there has been an increase of 31 new cases since Tuesday night’s announcement of 85 cases. 

“Today we have a further increase of six local transmission cases. As part of tracking and tracing, we have collated background information on how these patients were infected,” health minister Dr Zweli Mhkize said. 

Most of the new cases are in Gauteng, followed by the Western Cape. 

We urge the public to remain clam, be hygienic and keep to social distancing when they can. 

Aluta Continua, we will survive this. 

The SA Football Association (Safa) have taken the decision to suspend all football in the country in response to the covid-19 pandemic continuing to spread in South Africa. 

The suspension applies until April 4, Safa President Danny Jordaan said making the announcement at Safa House in Nasrec, south of Johannesburg on Wednesday. 

“We have a responsibility to govern football and therefore protect the players,” said Jordaan. 

The SA National Taxi Council has launched a programme that will see taxi ranks and the vehicles being sanitized in response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Santaco President Philip Taaibosch launched the initiative at Wanderers taxi rank in the Johannesburg inner city this morning.  

Taaibosch said all taxis will be sanitized before receiving passengers and the drivers will do the same. 

The initiative will start in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape, and later be rolled out to the rest of the country.  

Sanitizers will be made available in taxi ranks and to queue marshals to ensure a clean environment. 

This is great considering the amount of people using public transport in the country.
