President Cyril Ramaphosa will soon make a public announcement after the spike in Covid-19 cases and deaths.
This was confirmed by acting Minister in the Presidency Khumbudzo Ntshavheni yesterday after a meeting of the Cabinet.
However, she would not say whether the restrictions will be tightened or not.
“As we have said, we are all noticing the numbers are going up in terms of infections, people are starting to notice the tick up in terms of death.
“As Cabinet we are discussing and consulting on the measures to make sure that we protect South Africans and a decision will be taken soon after the consultation and we will announce at which time the President will then host a family meeting.
“But we can confirm that there will be a family meeting soon,” said Ntshavheni.
The Department of Health has shown figures with increasing numbers in the last few weeks.
The government has been calling for people to stick to non-pharmaceutical interventions to prevent the spread of the virus such as mask wearing, social distancing and hand sanitising.
Various provinces have in the last few weeks also announced that they are now on the third wave of Covid infections.
