On the vaccine front, said Buthelezi, there was a significant milestone hit on Tuesday.
"Our sprits were lifted today when we learnt that we have officially vaccinated over 1 million senior citizens aged 60 years and above under phase two. We must convey our appreciation to the senior citizens who have, and continue, to come forward in their numbers to be vaccinated.
"We also thank all those who are responsible for the administration of the rollout for their grit and determination as we continue to ramp up the campaign.
"There are a number of developments on the vaccination front which we will communicate in a public webinar this week, on a date to be confirmed," he said.
This announcement comes as the health ministry reported that there were 4,209 new Covid-19 cases recorded in the past 24 hours, and 120 Covid-19 related deaths.
There are currently 59,860 "active cases" across SA.
