[UPDATE] President Ramaphosa's Covid-19 address rescheduled to Monday
President Cyril Ramaphosa was due to address the nation on Sunday following several meetings about the coronavirus.
However, he's been locked in a meeting with the national command council dealing with Covid-19 that is expected to continue late into the night.
Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu says Ramaphosa has been discussing weighty matters with the council, including the socio-economic impact of the novel virus.
As of Saturday 21 March, a total of 240 South Africans have tested positive for the novel virus.
Last week Sunday, Ramaphosa declared the outbreak a state of national disaster and implemented stringent measures to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the country.
Mthembu told journalists earlier on Sunday that there was a possibility that the president would have to postpone his address.
