The story: President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation next week on the government's response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The details: Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu made this announcement on Thursday morning when he briefed the media on the outcomes of the previous day's Cabinet meeting.

A closer look: "Cabinet is concerned that some people are behaving recklessly and irresponsibly as if Covid-19 no longer exists. Cabinet calls on all people in South Africa to continue adhering to the health protocols of practising social distancing, wearing masks in public and washing our hands with water and soap or an alcohol-based sanitiser, and avoiding large gatherings," read the Cabinet statement.
