Since the lockdown began in South Africa on 27 March 2020, only 207 additional critical care beds and 350 ventilators have been added in the public health sector. According to a recent article on News24, there were 2,512 critical care beds available in the sector on 10 April, the number given by the then acting Director-General of the Department of Health, Dr Anban Pillay; as of 3 June the number was just 2,719.
