South Africa's Lockdown 'Will Be Phased Out'

A few amendments have been made as the country enters into an extended lockdown period. Mining operations will now operate at 50% capacity, particularly coal mining to supply electricity supplier Eskom. Divorced parents need to have their child's birth certificate when moving children between households, while the ban on the sale and transporting of alcohol and cigarettes remain in place. The sale of prepared food, whether sold in restaurants or supermarkets, is still not allowed, while the government revised its position on imports and exports.
