Infographics have been developed to aid the understanding of the factors that may amplify the risk of the coronavirus disease (abbreviated as COVID-19) for local communities in South Africa. They have been grouped according to four core themes that focus on (1) COVID-19 Hotpots (2) potential high risk areas for spread of COVID-19, (3) the vulnerability of individuals, and (4) the ability of the public healthcare system to cope with the infected population.


Vulnerability indicators have been identified from publicly available data sources including Health Systems Trust, National Census, 2016 Community Survey, and CSIR’s Green Book.
