We are Going to Level 1 Lockdown, Malema suggests

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Leader Julius Malema has offered a interesting prediction that South Africa may soon downgrade lockdown regulations to Level 1.

Ramaphosa said on Friday 26 February while fielding questions from journalists at a SANEF event that whatever decisions are taken will be based on the advise of SA’s epidemiologists and disease experts.

“Opting to keep the country under lockdown Level 3 is guided purely by science,” he said. “Epidemiologists and geneticists are helping us with our policies. All decisions we make are based on well-tested information.”

SA is currently operating at the Adjusted Level 3 phase, but the President may be gathering us for another 'family meeting' in the not so distant future.

President Cyril Ramaphosa having announced on Friday that the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) will review our current lockdown restrictions ‘imminently’.

COVID-19 cases have been consistently below the 2 000 mark over the last month, with cases having soared in December and January as the country battled its second wave of infections.
