South Africans have been told to prepare living with the threat of coronavirus for a year or even more.

President Cyril Ramaphosa said people will still be expected to social distance, wear masks and wash their hands for a while.

He used his weekly newsletter on Monday to warn that “it will not be life as we knew it before” even as restrictions are being eased.

He said:

We will introduce new measures to make contact tracing more effective. We will need to implement mass sanitisation of workplaces, public transport and other spaces.”

He warned that the number of infections is expected to increase.

With over 10,000 cases, South Africa has highest number of COVID-19 infections in Africa.
