“So assuming you take a gander at the genuine numbers, the greatest numbers are in the Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, and Gauteng yet that is true because those are the greatest regions with the vast majority and the more urbanized territories with better admittance to mind. So what we have seen right presently is a summed-up increment.”
