WATCH LIVE | Dlamini-Zuma briefs media on level 2 lockdown regulations

The National Coronavirus Command Council will on Monday brief the media on the regulations for Covid-19 lockdown level 2.

President Cyril Ramaphosa on Saturday announced that SA would be moving to level 2 of the lockdown from midnight on Monday, with bans on travel between provinces and the sale of alcohol and tobacco products being lifted.

It has been five months since a national state of disaster to combat the coronavirus pandemic was declared.

Over the past three weeks, the number of new confirmed cases has dropped from a peak of more than 12,000 a day to an average in the past week of about 5,000 a day.

While the virus appears to have peaked in several provinces, including the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Gauteng and possibly in KwaZulu-Natal, Ramaphosa has warned against complacency as the country moves to level 2.
