South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has confirmed that tighter restrictions are on the cards as SA enters its third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. “Cabinet has therefore decided that the country will be placed on adjusted alert level 2 with effect from [Monday]”, Ramaphosa said. New curfew hours in the country are from 11pm to 4am, with bars and restaurants having to close by 10pm though alcohol sales will be permitted. Gatherings will also be reduced from 250 to only 100 people inside and 250 outside, with a 50% capacity indoors in smaller spaces, while night vigils and after funeral gatherings are not allowed.
