“The Western Cape government is well prepared for Covid-19. We have shown that we are able to track and manage this virus, and we continue to flatten the curve. Our province-wide hotspot management also continues,” said Winde.

“We are requesting that the government lifts the curb. We want a set date in October for the opening of international travel so that bookings can be made by international travelers who want to come to our country,” he added.

In a bid to save jobs and business, Winde said that more economic activity is needed such as events and sporting events which can be done safely.
