President Cyril Ramaphosa announced an immediate ban on alcohol sales in a national address on Sunday evening.

He said this was to ensure that hospital beds were not taken up “by those who come in resulting from alcohol-induced trauma or injuries”.

Along with the ban on alcohol, Ramaphosa reinstated a curfew from 9pm to 4am from Monday, as well as stopping family visits in an effort to curb the spread of Covid-19 in SA.
