Gauteng Premier David Makhura says his office has been hard at work to prepare for the months ahead. He says the Easter Weekend is worrying, while the winter season will bring challenges.
“The Easter weekend is a weekend where large numbers of people move out of our province. Increased mobility is always an important risk factor regarding the potential spread of COVID-19.
The provincial command council says that the second wave of COVID-19 infections in the province was not as bad as the first, thanks to timely lockdown level revisions.
