Calls are mounting for Ramaphosa to urgently ease restrictions on movement and gatherings, as well as other lockdown laws restricting the sale of alcohol. It is expected that the President will shift the country down to a more relaxed lockdown level, with South Africa having languished in level 3 for over three months, running parallel to the arrival of the third wave of infections in July.
