Western Cape’s mini-lockdown decision to be made on Thursday

Article by Joshua Booysens

It’s been a few days since Premier Alan Windes chaired a meeting with Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize regarding a short-term hard lockdown in the Western Cape following a resurgence of COVID-19 cases.

According to Windes, a decision on the measures the Western Cape provincial government is willing to take, to curb the rapid spread of COVID-19 will only be made on Thursday.

When speaking to Cape Argus, Windes said: “at this stage, no decision has been taken yet on localised restrictions, and we are still seeking legal advice on what is possible given that disaster restrictions are imposed by the national government, and not by provinces. However, we will communicate our plan of action at this week’s Digital Press Conference held on Thursday.”

As at 30th November 2020, there are 2302 new COVID-19 cases in South Africa.
