The latest number of positive #Coronavirus cases has been released for the Western Cape and the #Overberg.
• The Western Cape has 7220 confirmed cases (as of 1pm today)
• The Overberg has a total of 34 cases, including 15 recoveries and the first death due to COVID-19. We send our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased at this difficult time.

We’d like to once again highlight the difference between the Overberg numbers and those provided by the Western Cape Government. There are 2 reasons for this.

Firstly, many people have registered addresses in the Overberg, but don’t live in the district. Or some have addresses outside the Overberg, but are now living in the Overberg. The Western Cape Government statistics look only at the listed addresses of the person. Secondly, our #Overberg frontline staff actively verify if they are currently living in the Overberg or not (thereby helping to ensure our stats are accurate).

Just a reminder that the Department of Health does not allow us to name the towns where the cases are present.


Die nuutste aantal positiewe Koronavirus-gevalle is beskikbaar vir die Wes-Kaap en die #Overberg.
• Die Wes-Kaap het 7220 bevestigde gevalle (teen 13:00 vandag)
• Die Overberg het altesaam 34 gevalle, waarvan 15 mense reeds herstel het, en die eerste sterfte in die distrik weens COVID-19. Ons innige meegevoel aan die familie en vriende van die oorledene gedurende hierdie moeilike tyd.

Ons wil weereens die verskil tussen die Overberg en Wes-Kaap regering getalle verduidelik. Daar is 2 redes hiervoor.

Eerstens het baie mense geregistreerde addresse in die Overberg, maar woon nie tans in die Overberg nie. Sommige het addresse buite die Overberg, maar woon nou in die Overberg. Die Wes-Kaapse regeringsstatistieke kyk net na die addres van die pasiënt en nie waar hulle woonagtig is nie. Tweedens, ons Overberg gesondheidswerkers is op die voorste linie en verifieër elke positiewe geval in die Overberg.

Let wel dat die Department van Gesondheid nie toelaat dat dorpe waar gevalle voorkom genoem word nie.
