Another victim of coronavirus has died making the South Africa death toll rise to 13, health Minister Dr. Zweli Mkhize on Tuesday afternoon said the number of coronavirus infections in the country had ascended by 63, bringing the total to 1,749.
A 13th victim has passed away, a male at Durban’s Parklands Hospital who had stage four prostate cancer.
Mkhize was speaking after the Motsepe Foundation donated personal protective equipment to be given in all provinces.
The minister accepted the donation on behalf of the government.
“With the new supplies that are coming with the support from the Motsepe Foundation, the Solidarity Fund, [and] the private sector – all of this together will give us an additional six to eight weeks stock,” he said.
