President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to address the country tonight at 7.30pm on developments in relation to the country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The time of the address was changed from 7pm.
This follows meetings in recent days of the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC), the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC) and Cabinet.
The address, which was originally set for 7pm, was moved to allow viewers to watch veteran SABC newsreader Noxolo Grootboom’s final bulletin as she retires after 37 years.
Government was reportedly advised by the Ministerial Advisory Committee (MAC) to move the country to Alert Level 2 lockdown to help minimise the risk of a third wave of Covid-19 infections after the Easter break.
