According to the latest reports, Alert Level 2 is understood to be imminent, with President Cyril Ramaphosa expected to announce an easing of restrictions.
The President met with the National Coronavirus Command Council and the President’s Coordinating Council.
On Tuesday, the 7th of September they discussed the possible amendments, which include an adjusted curfew from 23:00 to 04:00.
Among the recommendations, further reports indicate that the number of people at gatherings be increased from 50 to 100 indoors and 250 outdoors, including sporting events. Offsite alcohol sales would also be allowed from Monday to Friday until 18:00 and on-site until 22:00.
Thomas and Skhumba asked Kaya 959 listeners if they can still tell what level of lockdown the country is on right now, and how can they tell for their day to day activities:
