No family meeting just yet, says the Presidency.

Minister in presidency, Mondli Gungubele says there are no “family meetings” to announce the easing of the current lockdown restrictions on the cards just yet. The minister was responding to a post-cabinet briefing on Thursday.

“Whether it is going to be eased or not, it depends a lot on the rate of infections. Secondly, it depends on the degree to which our facilities cope.

“Thirdly, of course mainly, it depends on us sticking to non-pharmaceutical measures,” Minister Gungubele said. He further mentioned that the convening of the family meeting depended on the advice given to National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC to determine if an announcement by the president is necessary.

“The current protocols are extended to October 15, so on that basis there is nothing to share with the family.”

Gungubele said Cabinet had at its meeting extended the national state of disaster to October 15.

“Cabinet approved that the country should remain on Alert Level 3 of the national response to the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.
