People infected with the coronavirus in South Africa now stands at 240.
Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize announced an increase of 38 confirmed cases on Saturday, after Friday's number stood at 202.

The Eastern Cape has recorded its first case, after a 28-year-old woman who travelled to Germany tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The province is now the seventh province to record a case of the virus. The only provinces with no confirmed cases are the Northern Cape and North West.
Meanwhile, the University of Cape Town has confirmed its third case of the coronavirus. In a statement, the institution said that the third person worked in the same department as the second case.
The Western Cape now has a total number of 74 COVID-19 infections- with 18 new infections recorded.
Of the total number of infections in the province, only two have required hospitalisation.
Premier Alan Winde said: "We all need to be taking more decisive action to stop the spread. Stay home if you can, and if you must go out, make sure that there is a 1.5 metre distance between yourself and any other person. We need to maintain regular handwashing and hygiene. If you have flu like symptoms, you must stay home and seek advice before you go to the clinic or hospital."
Premier Winde added: "If we all commit to implementing decisive measures in our own lives, we will be able to stop the spread and help to protect vulnerable people and communities from this virus. Together, we must stop the spread."
