This report includes an analysis of data on laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 deaths to estimate the effective reproductive number (R) of SARS-CoV-2 over time in South Africa nationally and in selected provinces where sufficient data are available. The effective reproduction number (R) is the average number of secondary cases per infectious case in a population composed of both susceptible and nonsusceptible hosts (once the infectious agent is circulating). If R>1, the number of new cases per time unit will increase, such as at the start of an epidemic.

Key highlights:

  • Nationally, the average R during the period of the stage 5 lockdown was 1.33 (95%CI: 1.07-1.65), rising to near 1.5 by the end of April.
  • The daily R dropped then dropped steadily throughout stage 4 lockdown, with an average over this period of 1.26 (95%CI: 1.06 – 1.49), continuing to decrease during the stage 3 lockdown, with an average of 1.10 (95%CI: 1.02 – 1.20) from 1 June to 5 July. This indicates ongoing transmission at a steadily slowing rate over this period.
  • In the Western Cape Province, the average R during the stage 5 lockdown was 1.45 (95%CI: 1.09-1.92), dropping steadily throughout stage 4 and 3 lockdown. During the stage 3 lockdown, the daily R has been close to the threshold value of 1, with an average of 1.00 (95%CI: 0.95 –1.05) from 1 June to 5 July. This indicates substantial slowing of transmission towards the end of June and early July.
  • In other provinces where estimation was possible (Gauteng, Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces), the R during the stage 5 and 4 lockdown ranged between 1.5 and 1.0. Generally, R showed reductions during the stage 3 lockdown indicating slowing of transmission, however in KwaZulu-Natal R remained well above 1 indicating increasing infections in this Province.
  • Reasons for the declines in R over the course of the stage 3 lockdown may include good public adherence to physical distancing, mask use and other measures, increasing population-level immunity or other factors, including residual biases in the data.

This report summarises data from national laboratory-based surveillance that is used to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic in South Africa. This report is based on data collected up to 12 September 2020 (week 37 of 2020).

Key highlights:

-As of 12 September 2020, a total of 649 793 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases had been detected in South Africa. The number of newly detected cases continue to decrease week on week, with number of new cases detected in week 37 (9 815) lower than the number of new cases detected in week 36 (11 942).

-In the past week, Gauteng Province reported the highest number of new cases (1 966/9 815, 20.0%), followed by Free State Province (1 851/9 815, 18.9%), and KwaZulu-Natal Province (1 321/9 815, 13.5%).

-Western Cape Province continued to report the highest cumulative incidence risk (1 584.3 cases per 100 000 persons). Free State Province (1 450.3 cases per 100 000 persons) replaced Gauteng Province (1 417.6 cases per 100 000 persons) as the province with 2nd highest cumulative incidence risk and the Northern Cape Province (1 059.6 cases per 100 000 persons) replaced KwaZulu-Natal (1 031.0 cases per 100 000 persons) as the province with the 4th highest cumulative incidence risk.

-Similar to the trend in the past three weeks, in the past week, Northern Cape Province (89.7 cases per 100 000 persons) followed by Free State Province (64.1 cases per 100 000 persons) and North West Province (23 cases per 100 000 persons) reported the highest weekly incidence risk. The weekly incidence risk in all the other provinces was less than 20 cases per 100 000 persons.
