President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to address the nation tonight at 7 pm on developments in the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
His planned address follows recent meetings with the national coronavirus command council, the president’s coordinating council and Cabinet.
South Africa is currently under alert level 1 lockdown, with alcohol and tobacco sales allowed and religious gatherings permitted among others.
Religious leaders had requested that places of worship be reopened to a minimum of 50% capacity – with strict safety protocols. However, there are now concerns that the religious gatherings over Easter will lead to super spreader events.
