It seems Covid-19 deaths might be more than what the South African government is letting out to the public.
Most citizens of South Africa were left puzzled after the Cable News Network (CNN) revealed that Covid-19 deaths are three times more than the publicly known number advised by the government.
To date the Ministry of Health Dr Zweli Mkhize has announced that the country has 5 173 deaths from the pandemic.
However this is not so with CNN which has advised it’s viewers that south Africa has 14 000 deaths from the virus.
This leaves many people wondering if really government is being truthful about the deaths or is the CNN inflating numbers so as to fullfil the predictions made by the World Health Organization that Africa would have millions infected and hundreds of thousands dying.
The South African government came to criticism a few weeks ago after the Gauteng government dug over 1 million graves in anticipation that deaths in the province would reach that threshold.
South Africa is currently 5th most affected country in the world and first in Africa with 374 thousand recorded cases and 195 thousand recoveries.
Africa has to date recorded 721 563 cases with 15 169 deaths and 383 195 recoveries yet the world stands at 14.6 Million cases with 8.2 million recoveries and 608 thousand deaths.
