President says country could move to level 3 before the end of May
Thu, 14 May 2020 - Staff Writer
With consultations on easing the lockdown to level 3 scheduled to get underway on Friday, President Cyril Ramaphosa suggested today that the country could move to level 3 before the end of May.
The President was speaking during a visit to Nelson Mandela Bay in the Eastern Cape to assess the provincial response to the coronavirus.
“I’m particularly happy that you have awoken to the danger of this and are now putting in place a clear health strategy,” he said.
Ramaphosa wrapped up his Eastern Cape trip with a visit to the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, which is earmarked as a facility for quarantine or isolation of COVID-19 patients.
Meanwhile Western Cape Premier Alan Winde called for the entire province to move to level 3, preferably before the end of May 2020.
According to Winde, it is simply no longer possible to maintain Level 4 restrictions anywhere in the Western Cape or South Africa.
He warned that the economic crisis caused by the lockdown had resulted in a life-threatening humanitarian disaster that would only worsen in the months ahead.
