President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced that the country will move to an adjusted level 2 of the COVID-19 lockdown to stop the spread of the Coronavirus in South Africa.

Ramaphosa was addressing the nation during a “family meeting” on Sunday on developments in the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

South Africa has recorded more than 1,659,000 Coronavirus infections while 56,363 people have succumbed to COVID-19.

Ramaphosa says further restrictions are necessary to ensure that health facilities are not overwhelmed and that lives that could be saved are not lost.

He say delaying the spread of the virus is especially important now to allow as many people as possible to be vaccinated before the third wave peaks.

“Based on these discussions, Cabinet has therefore decided that the country will be placed on Adjusted Alert Level 2 with effect from tomorrow. This means that the hours of curfew will start at 11pm and end at 4am.”

Ramaphosa also announced a limit on gatherings.

“All gatherings will be limited to a maximum of 100 people indoors and 250 people outdoors. Where the venue is too small to accommodate these numbers with appropriate social distancing, then no more than 50 per cent of the capacity of the venue may be used. Gatherings are the greatest sources of transmission, whether its weddings, funerals, social parties, religious services, political meetings or simply gatherings of family and friends.”

Ramaphosa has urged South Africans to adhere to the COVID-19 protocols.

“It remains mandatory for every person to wear a face mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times when in public spaces. It is a criminal offence not to do so.”

Ramaphosa says that according to the scientists that advise government, the severity of this third wave will largely be determined by the amount of contact each of us has with other people.
