In the wake of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s ban on social gatherings of more than 100 people to curb the spread of Covid-19, many of SA’s major events have been cancelled or postponed.
“Gatherings of more than 100 people will be prohibited. Mass celebrations of upcoming national days, such as Human Rights Day, and other large government events will be cancelled.
“Where small gatherings are unavoidable, organisers will need to put in place stringent measures of prevention and control,” he said
Also, the South African government is expected to introduce travel restrictions from some foreign countries and to recommend that all mass events in the country be cancelled or postponed in an effort to contain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) which the World Health Organisation this week declared a global pandemic.
