South Africa is on the verge of going back to Level 1 lockdown as the rate of Covid-19 infection still progresses even after the ease of lockdown.
The country’s President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to make his official public address that South Africa will move to lockdown level 1 in the near future when he addresses the nation next week.
There was no significant change in the infection rate when moving from level 3 to level 2, which is informing the potential move to level 1.
The president while speaking on Sunday said the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) is evaluating a number of proposals around the further easing of lockdown restrictions.
One of the requests he received was from religious leaders, specifically around increasing the number of people who may attend gatherings.
The president said the NCCC is also considering requests from the sporting fraternity, the entertainment sector, hotels, and tourism.
“We are considering all of that as we do an evaluation of where the infection rate is. We will be able to give consideration to all of these proposals and get advice,” he said.
Health Minister Zweli Mkhize has also said South Africa will need to move to a level 1 lockdown and a return to “normal activities” as part of its economic recovery.
The minister added it was too early to provide a date as to when the country could move to level 1, but confirmed the government was currently discussing the issue.
“The president will come out in the next few days and give us a sense of direction, but we will be preparing for people to start easing to the next level,” said Mkhize.
Under level 1 it is expected that most normal activities can resume, with precautions and health guidelines followed at all times”.
The government has not given specifics as to what lockdown level 1 will look like, but current restrictions and feedback from ministers shed some light on what to expect.
One of the major changes expected under level 1 is the opening of the country’s borders and allowing international travel.
