Concern over COVID-19 death toll in South Africa

The number of deaths due to COVID-19 are being said to be much higher than the official number according to researchers in South Africa. A 59% increase in deaths, or more than 17,000 deaths has been recorded when compared to past years according to a report by the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC). This indicates that there is a huge discrepancy in the numbers.
