Western Cape

The Western Cape Premier isn't enjoying the label of 'epicentre' being placed on the Western Cape.  The province is well prepared and operating smoothly and openly in its battle against Covid-19, seems to be Alan Winde's argument.

Minister Nkosana Dlamini-Zuma has detailed the rules of level 4 of the lockdown, include the very slight relaxations of the restrictions that prevent people from exercising in their neighbourhoods.
