South Africa has become the country with the 9th most confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the world. A day before it was sitting at the 10th spot but has now overtaken the United Kingdom. Just early last week SA was not even in the top 15.
Confirmed infection rates in the country are now at a daily average of 12,000. This prompted the country to return to lockdown on Monday.
Incredibly, the African country has by far the lowest number of deaths on the global top10 list.
