Remaining COVID-19 Regulations To Be Scrapped

In a recent turn of events last night, Health Minister, Joe Phaahla, in a memo dated 20 June 2022, notes that there has been a decline in “critical indicators” including the number of reported cases, hospitalisations, deaths and the “effective reproductive rate of the virus”.

In lieu of this, he is recommending that all remaining COVID-19 restrictions be scrapped.

The President’s Coordinating Council (PCC) on Covid-19 is expected to consider ratifying the recommendations when it meets on Wednesday.
