South Africa enters the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown alert level 4 on Friday as the country gradually eases movement restrictions in the fight against COVID-19.
The country went in a lockdown at midnight on 26 March 2020, and had been under lockdown alert level 5 for 35 days.
Alert level 5 was the most restrictive and alert level 1 will be the most relaxed.
The country will gradually adjust the levels across the country based on the level of COVID-19 infections.
Though the entire country is currently in level 4, government says there may be a time when different provinces are placed under different lockdown levels based on the COVID-19 infections in the particular province.
There is also a possibility of the country reverting back to level 5 depending on the level of the COVID-19 outbreak.
There are also restrictions that will remain in place throughout the different lockdown alert levels.
