PRETORIA, South Africa, January 14, 2022/APO Group/ —

The Minister for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, in terms of section 27 (5) (c) of the Disaster Management Act 2002 (Act No. 57 of 2002), published the extension of the National State of Catastrophe by Covid-19 until February 15, 2022.

The extension takes into account the need to continue to augment existing legislation and contingency arrangements undertaken by state bodies and all other actors to mitigate the impact of the disaster on lives and livelihoods.

All individuals are urged to continue to adhere to the Covid regulations. Everyone should wear a face mask at all times, social distance, avoid closed, poorly ventilated spaces, large gatherings, and wash hands with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

We urge all South Africans to heed our government’s call to get vaccinated, as it is through mass vaccination that we will be able to achieve herd immunity and ultimately protect lives and livelihoods.
