Western Cape Premier Alan Winde has welcomed the decision that the entire province will move from Alert Level four to level 3 from next week Monday.

On Sunday, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the entire country will shift down a level from 1st of June.

The Cape Town Metro, and the Cape Winelands, West Coast, and Overberg district municipalities, were all identified as Covid-19 hotspots.

The Western Cape remains the epicentre of the pandemic, with more than 60 percent of active cases in the country located here.

There’re total of 6,719 active cases of Covid-19 in the province. Winde says the plan outlined for hotspots will be implemented.

“This targeted hotspot plan will utilise our combined government resources to slow the spread of the virus, to protect vulnerable people, and to save lives. We look forward to working with all levels of government in implementing this plan”. Winde added that fighting the pandemic needs a societal approach.
