Following a decrease in new COVID-19 infections, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa placed the country on level 3 lockdown from July 25’th 2021. With this announcement restaurants, pubs, bars, and fitness centres have reopened, and inter-provincial leisure trips resumed. The sale of alcohol for on-site consumption is also allowed until 8 p.m.
Promisingly the vaccination effort in the country is gaining traction. A first vaccination dose has been given to over 10% of the population. From September 1st, the government will significantly raise vaccination rates by allowing people aged 18 to 34 to be vaccinated. This effort is made possible by increased supply: "We are scheduled to get roughly 31 million doses from Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson in the next two to three months," stated President Ramaphosa. He also said, “This has been possible through close collaboration between government and the private sector and with the active support of other social partners."
