KwaZulu-Natal remains top of the list with the most active cases, followed by the Eastern Cape. Gauteng leads the pack with the most recoveries.
Covid-19 cases and fatalities – based on national testing statistics – are likely to increase compared to official estimates.
This is according to a study released by the South African National Blood Service (SANBS) in collaboration with the Western Cape Blood Service.
The findings followed last year’s participation of 4858 blood donors from the Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, Free State, and KZN in the SANBS seroprevalence (the level of a pathogen in a population, measured in blood serum) study.
