Western Cape Premier Alan Winde says the province has officially exited the fourth wave of COVID-19 infections.
He says the average number of new cases has now dipped below 600, based on the seven-day moving average.
The province currently has 9 600 active cases.
Winde has reiterated his call to end the National State of Disaster to help the economy recover.
“The good news is that the Western Cape has now officially exited the fourth wave. It is also time that we end the national state of disaster too and we start to focus on this pandemic which is one of unemployment, one of poverty. It is critical that we move on to this focus,” says Winde.
