IOL previously reported that more than 600 police officers had succumbed to Covid-19.

Minister of Police Bheki Cele said the impact of Covid-19 had been felt with many officers losing their lives.

In June, Cele said. “We have painfully lost hundreds of our employees, both uniform members and support personnel, across departments and entities. To date, more than 600 police members have died of Covid-19-related complications and 29 334 have recovered. Many of them could not get their well-deserved dignified send-off because we had to observe Covid-19 regulations. Policing under the pandemic has left the sector with numerous lessons and unmatched levels of experience; of policing against all odds,” he said.
