As of Friday 3rd April 2020, the number of coronavirus cases broke the 1 500 mark, rising to 1 505. There are seven confirmed deaths, and two more deaths in KwaZulu-Natal awaiting confirmation on links to Covid-19.

SA government has appointed retired Constitutional Court Judge Justice Kate O'Regan to oversee the tracking and tracing of people using their cell phone numbers. Three patients at St Augustine’s Hospital in Durban are believed to have died from the coronavirus, and the hospital has shut down its emergency ward after 11 staff members tested positive for the virus.

South Africans appear to be heeding the call to stay indoors. Fin24 reports that there is a steep decline in the number of people moving around cities in the wake of the announcement of a 21-day lockdown, according to data by Google.
