The Health Ministry announced the total confirmed cases in South Africa on its third day national lockdown. COVID-19 positive cases increased by 93 to 1,280 as of Sunday and the death toll is 2.

South Africa declared a three-week lockdown to prevent the spread of the virus. People are advised to stay at home, businesses also had been temporarily stopped due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier, President Cyril Ramaphosa officially declared 112 people who were under quarantine in a remote resort for two weeks after being repatriated from Wuhan, China, where the coronavirus began, as all testing negative and free to return home.

Treasury officials said on Sunday they were considering approaching the International Monetary Fund for emergency funds to fight the outbreak, the largest so far on the continent and which some experts fear may overwhelm the already stretched health system.
