SOUTH AFRICA is mooting a renewed lockdown as the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases has doubled in a fortnight.
And India reported its highest daily total of new infections yet — 27,114 — on Saturday, meaning that the total number infected has risen from 600,000 to 900,000 in nine days.
The figures show that the deadly disease — which has now infected 12.5 million people worldwide and killed 560,000 — is still on the rise across much of the world.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa was due to address the nation last night after health officials warned of severe shortages of medical oxygen and beds in public hospitals.
