In a gazette released on Wednesday, the state of disaster was extended until at least 15 November.

“The extension takes into account the need to continue observing all non-pharmaceutical interventions against Covid-19 and increasing vaccinations as part of contingency measures being undertaken to mitigate against its impact,” said Dlamini-Zuma. 

In a statement, the minister said the decision was taken after consultations with relevant stakeholders.
