More than 120,000 people in South Africa would have died after a coronavirus infection and not just around 48,500, according to the official data from the authorities. South Africa is the worst hit country on the African continent by the pandemic.
The findings of the statistics experts largely agree with studies on coronavirus antibodies. A study published last week with nearly 5,000 blood donors in four provinces found that between 32 and 63 percent of people had contracted the novel coronavirus. According to official statistics, the infection rate is only two to three percent. According to the study, the provinces of Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal were hardest hit.
