Shorter hospital stays noted for latest #Covid19 spike | News Article

Health officials are seeing shorter hospitalisations during the latest spike in Covid-19 cases.

The Ministerial Advisory Committee says most of the infections are among the youth.

Koleka Mlisana, co-chairperson of the Ministerial Advisory Committee, said: “The majority of the infections are in the younger groups. We are seeing an increase in hospitalisations. We don’t have enough data to analyse how severe these cases are.

"The length of the hospitalisations is shorter. We’re probably looking at a milder form of cases. We’re watching to see and document. The Gauteng Province needs to make sure that the resurgence plans that are in place should start kicking in.”
