President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced several measures to curb the second wave of COVID-19.
They include beach closures, and limited alcohol sales.
Ramaphosa has also warned against large gatherings and super spreader events.
In reference to a youth festival in Durban that led to hundreds of infections, he has said such gatherings and parties are a big source of COVID-19 outbreaks.

Further restrictions announced by the president included all passengers in vehicles being required to wear masks, restaurant managers ensuring that all patrons wear masks, and employers ensuring all employees wear their masks.
