The Delta variant is now the biggest driving-force behind the increase in Covid-19 infections among Western Cape teenagers.

According to Head of Health, Dr. Keith Cloete an increase in infections among young people were reported when schools opened for the third-term.

He says this increase was expected because schools were closed during the first & second waves.

Cloete says the majority of teenagers contract the virus during social gatherings after school and on weekends.
