These new numbers come in light of spikes in positive cases following the Christmas and New Year holidays. As the numbers increase it must be noted that there have been expectations of such an increase as it has been observed that many people over the holidays were not observing the established protocols.
It is just over 14 days since the New Year celebrations and numbers did indeed begin to increase within the 14 day period when an infected person is expected to exhibit signs and symptoms of the infection.
