Just like many countries in the world, South Africa has been experiencing a deadly second wave of Covid-19, which, according to experts, has been fuelled by a new strain of the virus. This strain is more contagious and has led to more deaths.

By 30 November, 2020, South Africa had recorded 21789 deaths to Coid-19. In the past two months, more than 23,000 people have succumbed to Covid-19. The second wave of Covid-19 has hit us really bad!

There is, however, a very positive outlook right now. Data on Wordometer shows that the country has gone past the peak of the second wave. This is illustrated by the graphs of active cases and daily deaths below.

In my corner of South Africa, people have led their lives in virtually the same way as before throughout the pandemic, as far Covid-19 precautions are concerned. In fact, the fear factor that was there during the first wave is not there anymore,

Nevertheless, the more contagious strain of Covid-19 seems to have lost its steam and the numbers of active cases and daily deaths are getting fewer and fewer. Whatever happened to this fast spreading Covid-19 variant, only God knows.

Our prayer is that this positive trend will continue and that there is will be no third wave of Covid-19!
