Cyril Ramaphosa to address SA at 8.30pm about Covid-19 relief measures


That follows a cabinet meeting held on Monday and deliberations with the national coronavirus command council and other bodies.

 

President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation at 8.30pm on Tuesday evening on additional economic and social relief measures that form part of the national response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

This follows a cabinet meeting held on Monday and deliberations with the national coronavirus command council, the president’s co-ordinating council, and the national economic development and labour council (Nedlac), among others, the presidency said.

 

SA is in the fourth week of a five-week national lockdown, which was imposed in a bid to curb the Covid-19 pandemic. The novel coronavirus has infected more than 3,000 people in SA and left nearly 60 dead.

 

The virus has caused panic and fear across the globe and brought economies to a standstill. SA’s lockdown has compounded the country’s own economic and social problems.

 

A crucial cabinet meeting held last week to plan SA’s response to Covid-19 and the resulting economic crisis ended inconclusively, with no decisions taken and all proposals put off until later.
