Ramaphosa bans alcohol sales in South Africa

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Monday announced a ban on alcohol sales and said mask-wearing would be mandatory in public as his country became the continent’s first to record one million coronavirus cases.

Ramaphosa said during a televised speech that alcohol would be temporarily banned from midnight to help emergency services already under pressure.

He also announced it would be “compulsory for every person to wear a mask in public spaces,” saying it was a “drastic measure, now necessary”.
