Western Cape health authorities have recommended tighter restrictions, as the province is entering a Covid-19 third wave.
However, the province can’t implement them until approved by national government.
The restrictions include 50 people attending funeral for a maximum of two hours,
And gatherings are limited to 50 people indoors and 100 outdoors.
But, the restrictions proposed are not affecting the sale of alcohol and inter-provincial travelling.
Head of Health, Dr Keith Cloete, says they want to minimise the severity of the infections….
“ Now that’s a little bit stricter than what’s in the current regulations, but that is what we mitigating for, because we believe if we do that, there’s a chance of curbing transmission. We just saying there’s an opportunity if we stricter on gatherings that we can make a big difference at this early part of this inflection point”.
