Cyril Ramaphosa announces the arrival of 1million doses of Covid-19 vaccine in the country

President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the nation few minutes ago and a lot of things was said concerning Covid-19.

Covid-19 has really troubled the nation and the world at large and it looks like the cure has not been found as the number of people getting contracted increases day by day.

The president in his speech made it known that the vaccine is now in the country.

He also revealed that the Deputy President David Mabuza, Minister of Health Dr Zwelini Mkhize, Minister Khumbudzo Ntshavheni and him, received the country’s first consignment of Covid-19 vaccines.

President Cyril mentioned that health workers will be given the vaccine and other people will not be forced to take it as it is a choice.

“But I want to be clear. Nobody will be forced to take this vaccine. Nobody will be forbidden from travelling, from enrolling at school, or from taking part in any public activity if they have not been vaccinated.”

Read some of what he said from his speech:

  • The first good news is the arrival today of the vaccines. The second is that we have recorded our lowest daily increase in infections since the beginning of December last year.
  • The hours of the # curfew will now be from 11pm to 4am. Establishments will need to close by 10pm to allow their customers and staff to return home by curfew.
  • Faith-based gatherings will be permitted, subject to health protocols.
  • Restrictions on the sale of alcohol will be eased. The sale of alcohol by licensed premises for off-site consumption will be permitted from Mondays to Thursdays, from 10am to 6pm.
  • Most people are adhering to the restrictions we have had to impose and are diligently observing the basic health measures needed to prevent infection.
  • Gatherings may not exceed 50 people for indoor venues and 100 persons for outdoor venues. Where the venue is too small to accommodate these numbers with appropriate social distancing, then no more than 50 per cent of the capacity of the venue may be used.
  • Public places such as beaches, dams, rivers, parks and public swimming pools will be reopened subject to health protocols.
  • Restrictions on the sale of alcohol will be eased. The sale of alcohol by licensed premises for off-site consumption will be permitted from Mondays to Thursdays, from 10am to 6pm.
