COVID-19 cases are on the rise, again.
The Ministry of Health says over the last week – in particular, there has been an increase in persons needing to be hospitalised due to the virus.
Principal Medical Officer Maryam Abdool Richards gave the information during the Ministry of Health’s Covid Media Update on Wednesday.
She noted of the 156 patients in hospital 120 are unvaccinated.
She said this has been a sustained trend.
However the Ministry has also noted that more vaccinated persons are being hospitalised with the virus.
However the Ministry maintains that those who are vaccinate generally fair better than those without that added layer of protection.
