The third wave had been especially difficult for SA.Buoyed by the Delta variant of COVID-19 that wreaked havoc across India a few months prior, this third wave saw the countrys medical services once again pushed to the brink and forced the government to put the country under adjusted lockdown level 4 to aid in curbing the variants rampant spread.A graph showing each of the 3 waves that have struck South Africa.

Venues too small to accommodate these numbers with appropriate social distancing must adhere to filling only up to 50% capacity.The sale of alcohol from retail outlets for off-site consumption is now permitted between 10 AM to 6 PM from Monday to Friday.Alcohol sales for on-site consumption, such as for bars, taverns, and restaurants, are now permitted until 10 PM to allow employees time to get home before the curfew begins.The President says that the restrictions will once again be reviewed after a 2 weeks period and may be heightened or lowered depending on the state of the pandemic in South Africa.He also says that more information will be given about the so-called vaccine passports, which can be used to show proof of vaccination for various purposes and events, in the coming weeks.However, with the newly relaxed restrictions, Ramaphosa made it clear that there are many activities still restricted under adjusted lockdown level 2.
