With a second wave hitting the country and more than 7,000 new daily infections reported, South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, will be addressing the country tonight.

This was announced by the presidential spokesperson, Tyrone Seale, yesterday.

The statement also said that the president met with the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC), the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC) as well as a special sitting of Cabinet.

News24 reports that the Minister of Health, Zweli Mkhize, said that increases in new infections have been seen in six provinces.

With the second wave, the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal have been hit the hardest.

The tourism industry took a massive knock this year with all the various stages of lockdown. Many are fearing that if another hard lockdown comes into effect it might mean the closure of numerous establishments.

A time for the President’s speech hasn’t been announced yet.
