President Cyril Ramaphosa will address South Africans on Monday night.
Minister in the Presidency, Jackson Mthembu, says an exact time will be conveyed to the media during the course of the day. Mthembu says by that point, the President would have finalized measures to be undertaken to mitigate impact of the virus to South Africans and the economy.
Last night Mthembu said Ramaphosa had been in meetings all day on Sunday with experts on measures to step up the fight to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Health authorities have revealed that South Africa now has 274 cases of the coronavirus.
This means there has been an increase of 34 from Saturday’s announcement.
Gauteng is now standing on 132 cases, followed by the Western Cape with 88, KZN with 36, Free State with 9, Mpumalanga with 6, Eastern Cape with 2 and Limpopo with 1 case.
