It’s still time, guys. The presidency has just announced that President Cyril Ramaphosa will convene a family reunion again on Tuesday, June 15 to discuss the results of recent meetings with Cabinet, the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) and its team of ministers regarding the pandemic of COVID-19 and the way forward for the country as COVID-19 cases continue to rise in wave three.
We don’t expect much good news either. Recent reports and recommendations from a host of ministers have indicated that tighter lockdown restrictions should be implemented once again, with alcohol bans and stricter curfews being mentioned frequently during the conference. last week.
At what time will President Cyril Ramaphosa address the nation?
The presidency said in a statement on Tuesday (June 15) that the president will address the nation at 8 p.m. tonight.
“President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation at 8:00 p.m. today, Tuesday June 15, 2021, on the evolution of the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” they said.
“The president’s speech follows a meeting of the National Coronavirus Command Council, President’s Coordinating Council and Cabinet. “
Will lockout restrictions tighten?
The presidency said the speech was about Monday’s discussions with the aforementioned groups on infection rates and the best solution to try to stem the spread of the virus.
“As South Africa rolls out its national COVID-19 vaccination program, the government and social partners are continuously monitoring rates of infection, treatment and recovery of patients, as well as compliance with health regulations and other preventive measures, ”they said.
Ramaphosa last addressed the nation just over two weeks ago, but cases continue to rise. During that address he brought the country back to Level 2 restrictions, but as data has shown us over the past fifteen weeks, COVID-19 cases are still skyrocketing – and the third wave has been officially confirmed for Mzansi.
If Ramaphosa moves the country to Level 3 lockdown, collection allowances will decrease and restrictions on alcohol will become stricter. Restaurants, indoor entertainment venues, and social centers will all be at the mercy of government restrictions.
South Africa will provide the public with a link to the national address shortly.
