The Presidency on Monday announced that President Cyril Ramaphosa would address the country on developments around the coronavirus pandemic.
The national state of disaster, which has been extended every 30 days since its announcement and in line with the law since COVID-19 hit our shores, will come to an end on 15 January 2021. The president is expected to make an announcement to this effect, as well as address the country on further lockdown restrictions or lifting of rules. In the face of high daily increases and alarming drop in recovery rate, the latter seems unlikely though.
Rumours of Level 4 Lockdown has been making the rounds on social media and is important that citizens only pay heed to regulations and changes announced by the presidency or by a relevant minister. The address tonight will take place at 20:00
“President Ramaphosa also hosted a virtual engagement on Sunday 10 January 2021 between government and interfaith leaders on the COVID-19 Risk Adjusted Strategy which is an inclusive national effort that enables adaptive responses to the shifting pandemic,” the Presidency said through a statement.
“This engagement focused on the unfolding pandemic in the country and on the continent, including efforts to secure vaccines for all.”
