South Africa will go into lockdown for three weeks from midnight on Thursday. President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Monday night that the National Command Team on the coronavirus said this was a necessary step to contain the spread of global pandemic. South Africans would have to "stay at home" until midnight on April 16.

"I call on all of us, one and all, to play our role as South Africans; to be courageous, to be patient and, above all, to show solidarity," Ramaphosa said. "We are a nation of one and we are surely going to prevail. May God protect our people."

The action SA is taking now will have lasting economic costs, the president said. "But we are convinced that the cost of not acting now will be far greater. We will prioritise the lives and the livelihoods of our people."
