  1. Why is government hospitals taking so long to provide results of tests that were done and some results are just nowhere to be found

  2. These statistics are missing some data to be valid. Since people can carry the virus without showing symptoms. It is important to mention the amount of people tested vs infected as well as the amount of people showing symptoms and the number of people in icu.
    The numbers you are showing don’t mean much and can’t be called statistics. From world statistics and from how fast the virus spreads, the only thing your numbers are showing is that the Western Cape could be more efficient at testing and have tested a larger amount of people than the other provinces.
    These numbers can be manipulated to highlight so called bad actors…
