The first student who tested positive for COVID-19 at the University of Cape Town has fully recovered and has left isolation.

The university says COVID-19 cases from UCT now stands at seven – four staff members and three students.

Health Minister Zweli Mkhize announced recently that over 400 people have recovered from COVID-19.

Before President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the closure of schools, there were fears of the virus spreading like wildfire among students at all levels.

The University of Witwatersrand has also had a COVID-19 case in which one of its medical students contracted the virus and went into self-isolation.

The Wits medical student has also been cleared off the virus.

South African schools and universities remain closed as the country is under lockdown with strict restrictions implemented by the government as it battles with the spread of COVID-19.

The Departments of Basic Education has since opted to go digital with teaching and learning until the end of the lockdown period.
