Meanwhile, Health Minister Zweli Mkhize has confirmed that the number of positive Covid-19 patients has risen to 709 on Wednesday, a 28% increase from Tuesday.

President Cyril Ramaphosa, in a televised address to the nation on Monday night, announced that the country will enter a nationwide lockdown for 21 days with effect from midnight on Thursday.

“This is a decisive measure to save millions of South Africans from infection and save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people,” he said.

“While this measure will have a considerable impact on people’s livelihoods, on the life of our society and on our economy, the human cost of delaying this action would be far, far greater.”
