South Africa has the highest number of coronavirus infections in Africa

South Africa’s Auditor General Kimi Makwetu has described his findings into alleged corruption in the disbursement of the government’s Covid-19 relief fund as "frightening".
Some $26bn (£19bn), the equivalent of 10% of the country’s GDP, was disbursed to help mitigate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mr Makwetu said delays in the delivery of PPE and concerns over quality could have been avoided through better planning and management of suppliers.
