Cabinet Extends National State Of Disaster

The COVID-19 National State of Disaster will continue into next month after Cabinet approved the extension to 15 October.

“This is to continue giving effect to the regulations that remain relevant to manage the spread of COVID-19 infections,” Cabinet said in a statement.

At a meeting with the South African National Editor’s Forum this week, President Ramaphosa hinted that there may soon be another adjustment of lockdown regulations.

The president is expected to brief the nation next week.
