The Executive Mayor of the City of Johannesburg, Cllr Geoffrey Makhubo, has been hospitalised for COVID-19 complications.
This follows a positive test result for COVID-19 late last month.
The Executive Mayor will remain in hospital until his medical team is satisfied of his recovery.
Joburg residents are urged once more to take all necessary precautions to remain safe and to avoid infection. This includes strict adherence to non-medical practices of wearing masks, sanitizing regularly and minimising movement in line with the Level 4 restrictions announced by the President.
