SOUTH AFRICA EXTENDS EXTREME LOCKDOWN BY 2 WEEKS

Cyril Ramaphosa, the President of South Africa, has declared an extension of the extreme nationwide lockdown. The lockdown will be stretched by an extra 2 weeks, beyond the first 21 days.

Most of the primary lockdown measures will continue in place until the end of April, said the commander-in-chief.

“We are only at the beginning of a monumental struggle,” said Ramaphosa.

“If we end the lockdown too soon, we risk a resurgence of the disease.”

He added that risk-adjusted measures would be checked to guarantee individual companies can return to full operation.

“We did not take this resolution lightly,” said Ramaphosa.

The preference for the state is to guarantee there is not a massive loss of life, while at the same time not allowing the economy to collapse.

This will see healthcare efforts ramped up, along with economic stimulus packages for local businesses.
