DA interim leader John Steenhuisen says the country’s move to alert level one, including the opening of international borders and lifting of more restrictions on economic and social activity, has come five months too late.

Steenhuisen says president Cyril Ramaphosa must now implement wide-ranging pro-growth economic reforms to roll back mounting poverty, a pandemic much more deadly than Covid-19.
