We thought you might find this interesting. The data will be updated on a weekly basis.


SA COVID-19 stats
661 211 cases of which 1 55 are new
15 953 deaths of which 13 are new
590 071 recoveries of which 637 are new
67 671 tests per 1 million population
14 101 cases per 1 million population

Swift action, widespread testing, contact tracing, and critical support from citizens has meant that South Korea has successfully been able to flatten the curve, taking much-needed pressure off the healthcare system. At its peak, medical workers identified 909 new cases in a single day. 10 days later, that number decreased to only 35.

South Korea have showed that the world needs to:

  • intervene fast, before its too late;
  • test early, often and safely;
  • implement contact tracing, isolation and surveillance; and
  • enlist the publics' help.
