WEEKLY EPIDEMIOLOGICAL BRIEF

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 21 November 2020 (week 47 of 2020).  

Key highlights

  • As of 21 November 2020, a total of 767 679 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 20 903 deaths, had been detected in South Africa.
  • In the past week, Eastern Cape Province (99.4 cases per 100 000 persons), followed by Western Cape Province (47.7 cases per 100 000 persons), and Northern Cape Province (14.7 cases per 100 000 persons), reported the highest weekly incidence risk. The weekly incidence risk in all the other provinces was less than 10 cases per 100 000 persons.
  • The increase in number of cases from Eastern Cape was mainly due to a resurgence in COVID-19 cases from Nelson Mandela Bay District, where the weekly incidence risk increased sharply from week 42 to week 46. Sarah Baartman District showed a gradual increase from week 39 to week 42, when it increased sharply to week 46. The apparent decrease in number of cases and weekly incidence risk reported from these two districts in the past week is possibly due to delays in reporting.
