Sixty-six of the positive cases remain unallocated by region.
In Gauteng, the death toll due to the virus stood at four on Wednesday. The national death toll remained at 27.
“It is important to always note that allocating Gauteng cases to respective districts is an ongoing process,” said the statement.
