The Western Cape premier, Alan Winde, has called for the end of the National State of Disaster. According to him a blanket approach is unnecessary and provincial capacity must be taken into account.

Winde said that a better Covid-19 management system will reduce pressure on the country’s economy.

“You are managing your hospital system, it doesn’t matter how many beds you’ve got, you don’t need a blanket lockdown across the whole of the country when we don’t need it in Gauteng right now. So quite frankly, and the same thing would apply to a number of our provinces and we started getting it right, I think, in the start of the second wave when we started closing districts down,” he said.

On Wednesday South Africa recorded more than 4 100 new Covid-19 infections with KwaZulu-Natal remaining a hotspot with 1 163 new Covid-19 infections.
