Cape Town’s Covid-19-free care homes

A tale of two care homes 

In Cape Town, two care homes have demonstrated how to reduce and even eliminate the presence of Covid-19. Statistics show that the coronavirus is most deadly among older people, with individuals in care homes dying in large numbers in the UK. In South Africa, a quarter of all Covid-19 deaths have been among people in the 50-60 age group and not far off the rest of the 2,500 people have been aged 60 and over.
