The National State of Disaster, which allows the national lockdown, has been extended by a month.

In a government notice published on Saturday 15 August, Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said there was a need to "continue augmenting the existing legislation."

The government first declared a national state of disaster in response to the Covid-19 pandemic back in March.

The declaration has been extended and is now valid until 15 September.
