He stated: Because this is uncharted territory for any country worldwide, as you go even more out, week by week, the numbers in terms of projections are even less reliable.
I stated in parliament yesterday that by the time we get to the 19th, we would anticipate case numbers already to be a minimum of double what they are now, so around 50,000 a day.
As we ease and go into the summer season, we expect them to increase substantially and they could go as high as 100,000.
