Steenhuisen says SA must move to Level 1 lockdown

Democratic Alliance interim leader John Steenhuisen has called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to open all sectors of the economy.

Steenhuisen's call comes amid growing speculation that the president will announce a move to Level 1 of the lockdown this week.

South Africa has been under varying levels of the lockdown since March in a bid to combat the spread of Covid-19.

Steenhuisen said the president must allow international travel and a normal school week.

 

Ramaphosa to discuss possible easing of regulations with Nedlac, PCC

President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to chair virtual meetings of the President’s Coordinating Council and National Economic Development and Labour Council today, where discussions may be held on moving the country to level 1 of the lockdown.

The presidency said the PCC meeting, co-chaired by Deputy President David Mabuza, would bring together ministers, premiers, and the leadership of the South African Local Government Association.

 

Nigerian health workers strike over coronavirus allowance

Nigerian health workers demanding the payment of a hazard allowance for treating coronavirus patients have gone on strike only a week after doctors in Africa's most populous country staged a walk out.

The Joint Health Service Unions representing medical staff such as nurses, midwives and radiologists said the strike, which began on Monday, would last for seven days.

Doctors across the country however will continue to work.

The trade union's demands include life insurance for its members, full access to protective equipment and pay structure adjustments.

That’s a roundup of news making headlines today
