Dr. Joe Phaahla, Minister of Health, did not say whether a stricter blockade would be announced at the National Coronavirus Command Meeting on Sunday. Phaahla said the outbreak of infection required action, but he did not say whether to impose further restrictions.
Phaahla said he was concerned because the infection rate was about 200 cases about 10 days ago, but now it has increased to 2,800.
He said he wanted to make sure that the spread of the virus was suppressed before the holiday season. He said it was premature to say whether a stricter blockade would be announced.
"Stricter blocking? Not necessarily something done. The weekend from tomorrow to Sunday will be meetings between players, government agencies including Natjoints, who are responsible for all departments including security clusters, communications, And all departments of the state are still there.
They will monitor it and a council of coronaviruses consisting of ministers, vice presidents and presidents will meet. "
"We are currently investigating the situation from our side. We make some recommendations regarding the fact that infections are steadily increasing. We make recommendations on health measures. I will do it, "he said. Phaahla, however, did not make the recommendations they would make.
He said he knew in the past what measures were taken to prevent the virus from spreading. However, they are concerned about the increase in infectious diseases and need to act.
