President Ramaphosa to address the nation at 7pm

President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation at 19h00 on Sunday on developments in the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The President’s address follows meetings in recent days of the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC), the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC) and Cabinet.

The talks come amid concerns over the surge in coronavirus cases in the country.

South Africa reported 4 515 COVID-19 cases and 70 deaths overnight:
