South Africans have been warned that if they do not comply with the Level-4 nationwide lockdown regulations the country could revert back to Level-5 restrictions. This was said by Co-operative Governance Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.
President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the lockdown regulations will be lowered from Level-5 to Level-4 on May 1.
Dlamini-Zuma says the rate of coronavirus infection will determine which level the country will move to.
According to SA’s risk-adjustment strategy for economic activity, Level-4 is expected to be “moderate to high virus spread, with moderate readiness”. However, some leisure and social activities will remain prohibited through all lockdown levels.
