SOUTH Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa is addressing the nation on Wednesday from 8.30pm on the ongoing measures to manage the spread of the coronavirus through the implementation of a risk adjusted strategy.

Ramaphosa’s address follows a number of meetings of Cabinet and the National Coronavirus Command Council.

In his last address to the nation on April 23, Ramaphosa announced an easing of the nationwide lockdown. He said a phased reopening of the economy will begin on May 1.

Ramaphosa noted that although a lockdown remains the most effective way to limit the spread of the virus, the prosperity of South Africans would be at risk with a continued lockdown. 

South Africa is on day 48 of its national lockdown.
