Health minister says SA has reached a “historic day" and "major turning point" in fight against Covid-19  

Health minister Dr Joe Phaahla on Thursday said SA had reached a "historic day" and "major turning point" since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. This comes after the decision to scrap the regulations governing the use of face masks, limits on gatherings and testing and vaccination rules for those entering the country. Some South Africans also weighed in on the matter.
