Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital has confirmed that it has not had trauma patients coming in on 1 January, a first in the hospital’s history.

This after South Africa moved from Level 1 to an adjusted Level 3 of lockdown including a 21:00 curfew, in intensified efforts to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

On Monday, President Ramaphosa made the announcement following a high resurgence of COVID-19 cases and a new variant of the virus.

The sale of alcohol has also been banned until January 15, when the situation will be reviewed.

“Night clubs and businesses engaged in the sale and transportation of liquor will not be allowed to operate. The Level 3 restrictions will remain in place until 15 January 2021. These measures will be reviewed at that time on the basis of the state of the pandemic in the country,” stated Ramaphosa.
