Western Cape premier Alan Winde says he will “make clear” his government’s position that the province should move to Level 3 lockdown restrictions as soon as possible.

Premier Alan Winde said on Thursday he would “make clear” his provincial government’s position that the Western Cape must move to Level 3 lockdown restrictions as soon as possible.
This is despite the province being home to 55.6% of the total positive Covid-19 cases in the country.
According to provincial government statistics on its Covid-19 dashboard on Wednesday, the Western Cape has 6 767 confirmed cases.
Of that, 117 people have died.
President Cyril Ramaphosa was scheduled to visit the Western Cape on Friday, but this was postponed after Winde went into self-quarantine after coming into contact with eNCA cameraman Lungile Tom, who died of Covid-19 on Wednesday morning.
