Excess mortality data take a long time to gather and validate, and are normally released on a weekly basis by the SAMRC. Don't expect the recent surge in Gauteng to show up for several weeks. The W-Cape is the only province that has shown statistically significant numbers (so far).Are there graphs of current all-in excess mortality on a provincial basis available anywhere?
