Democratic Alliance (DA) interim leader John Steenhuisen said that NCCC should cancel the lockdown altogether and allow full economic operation.
He said should avoid to fully focus on health and behavioural changes in society to stop the spread of virus.
On Wednesday night, President Cyril Ramaphosa relaxed more regulations under level three, which mean you will soon be able to sit down at restaurants, visit hair salons and stay at hotels.
The DA has criticised the relaxed regulations said it does not make any sense, you can go to any restaurant and sit down for dinner but you can not go to a museum or library, it does not make any sense.”
Steenhuisen said Ramaphosa seems to have finally realised how devastating the lockdown has been for ordinary South Africans.
“It is unclear at which level of the lockdown we now find ourselves – not that it makes much difference, as the lockdown is now de facto ended. But this ending comes too late to save thousands of businesses and millions of jobs,” he said.
Steenhuisen said it was the world’s longest lockdown, not Covid-19 itself, that was killing the economy and causing misery for millions of South Africans.
The worry of SA’s is the fact that most industries are forced to retrench in order to safe the company, due to in operational of lockdown.
