Cyril Ramaphosa, South Africa’s President said in an address to the nation on Sunday the country had largely passed its peak of infections attributed to the third wave of Covid-19 that has been raging in the country since last May.
As a result, restrictions will be eased. The ban on alcohol sale has been lifted, non-essential establishments like restaurants are set to reopen and inter-provincial travel for leisure will resume. Schools have fully reopened, and social and religious gatherings are again allowed for a maximum of 50 people indoors and 100 people outdoors. The nighttime curfew has been reduced to 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
