South Africa Sees Covid-19 Fourth Wave Starting in Early December
(Bloomberg) -- South Africa expects a fourth wave of coronavirus infections to start on Dec. 2 and to last about 75 days, Salim Abdool Karim, former chairman of the government’s ministerial advisory committee on Covid-19, said.
The government is assuming that the wave will follow a similar pattern to that of the third wave and that there will be a new variant by then, he said in a Government Technical Advisory Centre conference.
Data is suggesting the current wave will end about Aug. 26, he said.
