Since publishing this article, the Presidency has confirmed there will be another "family meeting" tonight (Tuesday) at 8:00 PM.

  • President Cyril Ramaphosa is meeting the National Coronavirus Command Council, the Premiers, and his Cabinet on Tuesday.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is chairing a meeting of the National Coronavirus Command Council on Tuesday.

Ramaphosa will then meet with the Premiers followed by a meeting with his Cabinet.

The country is in the grips of a third wave of Covid-19 infections – with vaccination levels too low to start making a difference.

It seems another dreaded “family meeting” is imminent.

South Africa recorded 5548 new cases of Covid-19 and 114 deaths on Monday.

About 481 000 people (0.8% of the population) have been fully vaccinated (by 9 June).
