South Africa’s Western Cape, home to the tourist hub of Cape Town, has become Africa’s Covid-19 hotspot with 15 percent of the continent’s caseload.

The Cape Town area, which sits on the Atlantic Ocean with the majestic Table Mountain overlooking the city, has become an epicentre for the pandemic in Africa despite the rate of infection advancing at a much slower pace than in the rest of the world.EFE-EPA
