The South African Medical Association (SAMA) says people need to be cautious with COVID-19 as infection rates rise across the country.

The latest coronavirus report in November shows more than 8,000 active cases.

SAMA also says many people are mistaking the common flu for COVID-19 and vice versa.

The upcoming holiday season is the first in two years without coronavirus security.

SAMA chairman Mwuisi Mzukwa warned against complacency.

“Covid-19 is still with us. Studies that have been carried out in the sanitation sector in megacities continue to show that the number of infected people is high. So there are still cases of COVID-19 and the virus still exists. So it’s really important that people remember that even though it seems like we’re at the end of the pandemic, we’re still out there, not out of the woods yet.”
