CAPE TOWN –Western Cape Premier Alan Winde has urged residents need to continue adhering to the lockdown safety regulations as the province moves into recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Winde and his team have identified what was needed in their recovery plan and will focus on jobs and safety.
“All indicators confirm that the Western Cape has moved into the recovery phase of its pandemic. We need to ensure that we keep up all the behaviour changes we have learnt over the last 5 months,” said Winde.
“We need to move forward. We need to get out of our homes and support businesses so that we get our economy growing again. We need to make sure we get the medical treatment we need for non-Covid health conditions which we have been delaying.
“We need to get back to work, to school and to our lives – and we need to do it safely.
“We don’t have to pick-and-choose between being safe and moving forward. We can do both, and we can get onto the right track again,” he said.
Winde added that they’re eager to further the opening up of the economy and will adopt an official position to present to President Cyril Ramaphosa.
