From Sunday 28th February 2021, at midnight, South Africa has moved to Alert Level 1.
South Africa has seen a large reduction in the number of cases of Covid-19 since Level 3 restrictions were reinstated in late December 2020. The second wave of the pandemic took a heavy toll on South Africans, both in the number of people who died and the economic cost of restrictions. However, the good news is that the restrictive measures were successful in reducing the spread of the virus. We are now back in Level 1 BUT must continue to follow basic protocols of wearing a mask, social distancing and hand-washing so that we avoid a third wave!
