COVID-19 Case Data
Case Data Infographics
The following infographics have been developed to present an overview of the COVID-19 cases across South Africa and a downloadable version of the District Level Hotspot map that will form the basis of decision-making regarding the national lockdown level. These sets of infographics make use of the latest publicly available data. It is not the intention to duplicate efforts of dashboards tracking the spread of COVID-19. The team recommends the dashboard developed by interdisciplinary team of researchers from Wits University and iThemba LABS of the NRF in collaboration with the data analytics team of DataConvergence.
