South Africa ends Covid curbs including wearing of face masks

South Africa’s Health Minister Joe Phaahla has repealed the country’s remaining coronavirus-related restrictions, according to a government gazette published Wednesday.

These include the wearing of masks, curbs on gathering sizes and border checks for Covid-19. Phaahla earlier this week suggested the restrictions be dropped following the decline in hospitalisations and reported cases, according to a statement dated June 20.
