President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation at 8 pm on Saturday evening to brief South Africa on the strategy to manage the spread of COVID-19.
The President’s address follows a meeting earlier this week of the National Coronavirus Command Council and meetings on Saturday of the President’s Coordinating Council and Cabinet.
It has been five months since the coronavirus pandemic was declared a national disaster.
The first expiry date was 15 June and since then it’s been extended every month as required by law.
Meanwhile, several business organisations have started a nationwide campaign calling for an end to the COVID-19 lockdown.
