  • Workplaces

  • Residential

Coverage period: Feb 15–May 25, 2020

On this page, we use the weekly average data with the aim of reduction of fluctuation.

This dashboard is developed and maintained by a team of student volunteers.

We request donations to cover stipends for those students experiencing hardships

in this time of lockdown. Donations from South African tax payers are tax deductible.
