South Africa under Lockdown
Our country is finding itself in unchartered waters following our President,
Cyril Ramaphosa’s, declaration of a national state of disaster, and the
subsequent announcement of a national lockdown of all the country’s residents
(except for essential service providers) which took effect at midnight on 26 March 2020
and continues until 16 April 2020. These extraordinary measures are required to stop the transmission of the
novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
