President Cyril Ramaphosa will once again be sitting the nation down tonight to deliver another address. This could be about possible tougher lockdown regulations.
The exact time of the address is yet to be announced. The address will be broadcast and streamed on a range of platforms that are accessible to South Africans and international audiences.
President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation on Monday evening, 14 December 2020, on developments in relation to the country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The address follows meetings today, Sunday 13 December 2020, of the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC), the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC), and a special sitting of Cabinet.
This address comes as the Minister announced that the country is officially experiencing it’s second Covid wave. Increases have been seen across all factors which are monitored.
Health services in the country are currently strained with hospitals in the Western Cape and Eastern Cape being filled to capacity with Covid patients. Healthcare workers are said to also be exhausted and won’t be able to get the rest they deserve during this festive season due to the resurgence in cases.
The country could therefore possibly see changes in the alcohol restrictions as earlier restrictions helped with decreased hospital admissions.
