Regularly, typically on a Friday, the GP govt delivers a televised media conference on Covid 19 issues.
Each time this happens, we are subjected to a bunch of talking heads, now with masks on, referring to slides in their presentations that we can't see. Just another example of how totally useless everything related to GP actually is. They can't even get their televised media presentations right!

Idiots must go and try fix a pothole. When this is achieved then I still won't believe a word they spew out.

74 is basically no one? I mean we don't moan about the 50+ a day to murder.
You should try harder.
People continually complain about the continual rape and murder in this country.
Why not just take a look right here in the N&CA threads.

Nobody moans, yea sure.

Is this one also a catchup since December?
Who's reporting do you trust more, EWN or the department of health /NICD?

PS: it's starting to look like my trip to Botswana to be alone in the middle of the Bush in mid May will once again be verboten (after last year's cancelation)

Yes considering it's the same data?
No
Another 24 hrs later:

The number is irrelevant.
The prediction from gypsey rose on Feb25
I'm perfectly happy to be proven wrong. Are you?
There was a mutation that made covid much more infectious which is why we had the second wave.
I guess we will see in 3 weeks if there is basically no-one dying from covid in SA anymore?
Do you dispute that?

Neither, quite frankly.
Some seem to be ignoring the prediction from gypsey rose on 25 feb

No they are not 24 hours later, considering all the numbers match.
Also this is the 'last' 24 hours, only 42 deaths.
Here are the numbers from the 18th which would be the previous day to the 311 deaths, where it was 90. So your 2 are the exact same data, the 311 reported on the 19th were the fixing the data from December hence why it was so high.
