President Ramaphosa to address nation at 7pm on Tuesday

President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation on developments in the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic at 7pm on Tuesday.

According to the Presidency, the address follows meetings in recent days of the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC), the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC) and Cabinet.

“As South Africa rolls out its national COVID-19 vaccination programme, government and social partners are continuously monitoring infection, treatment and patient recovery rates, as well as compliance with health regulations and other prevention measures,” the President’s Office said.

Western Cape Premier, Alan Winde said the province does not support a move to lockdown level 2 as ‘’it is not supported by the province’s data, and it will undermine economic recovery.’’

Winde stated that the province’s response to COVID-19 has from the very beginning been based on data, evidence and science.

“We have also always maintained that a balance must be achieved in saving both lives and livelihoods in our province. This is because a humanitarian crisis caused by economic restrictions will also cost lives in the Western Cape and South Africa.’’

“In considering whether a move to alert level 2 should be introduced ahead of the upcoming religious holidays, we have again applied these guiding principles and compared the data available to us.” Winde added.
