South Africans will know on Thursday about plans to ease the nationwide lockdown

South Africans will know on Thursday about the government’s plans to ease the nationwide lockdown. Speaking on Tuesday night, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a massive R500bn economic package to help the country deal with the implications of the coronavirus and its spread through the country.

But he also announced that the government was going to “reopen the economy” – with the plans to be announced in two days’ time. On Thursday, I will address the nation on the measures that will be taken beyond the nationwide lockdown to reopen the economy,” he said.

The government would take a “risk-adjusted approach” to get the economy restarted, balancing limiting the spread of the virus “with the need to get people back to work”.

“As I’ve said before, if we end the lockdown too soon or too abruptly, we risk a massive and uncontrollable resurgence of the disease. We will therefore follow a phased approach, based on the best available scientific information, to gradually lift the restrictions on economic activity,” he said. We remain firm in our resolution to contain the transmission of the virus. We must act with agility and flexibility in the weeks and months ahead.
