It has been exactly seven weeks since the first case of the coronavirus was confirmed in our country. As a nation we have been forced to take aggressive action against an invisible enemy that threatened our lives and the lives of our loved ones. As we enter the fifth week of an unprecedented nation-wide lockdown — and as we look to the future — we should remember why we are here. The novel coronavirus, which was identified in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December last year, has spread rapidly across the world.
The coronavirus causes the disease known as COVID, a respiratory illness for which humans currently have no immunity and for which there is no known cure. The coronavirus is passed from person to person in small droplets from the nose and mouth that can be transmitted by direct contact, on surfaces we touch or when an infected person coughs or sneezes when they are close to another person.
These are usually older people and those who suffer from underlying conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and cancer. Because the coronavirus can spread so rapidly through a population, it can overwhelm even the best-resourced health system within a matter of weeks. This is what has occurred in many countries across the world, and it is precisely what we, as South Africa, have gone to great lengths to prevent.
Very few health systems across the world — if any — are prepared for a sudden and exponential increase in people requiring treatment for a severe respiratory illness. As a result, if the virus spreads too quickly, there are not enough hospital beds, intensive care units, ventilators, personal protection equipment or medicine for everyone who needs them. To make matters worse, people who are suffering from other conditions or need emergency procedures are unable to get the care they need.
I am reiterating these basic facts — which by now are probably familiar to many of you — because they explain the actions we have taken to date and they inform the measures I am announcing this evening.

It contains 26 rights, many of which have seen active service in the years since the constitution came into effect in early The constitution , including the charter of rights enshrined in chapter 2, is inevitably and appropriately the subject of frequent, deep and sometimes bitter contestation.
