Welcome to the South African Embassy website. As you know The National Coronavirus Command Council of South Africa has decided to enforce a nation-wide lockdown for 21 days with effect from midnight on Thursday 26 March until midnight on Thursday 16 April 2020.
This is a decisive measure to save millions of South Africans from infection and save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. The declaration of 21 days lockdown from 26 March until 16 April will stop the spread of the Covid19, a global pandemic.
As our President Cyril Ramaphosa indicated it knows no geographical or territorial boundaries, has infected both young and old, and is on the rise in developed and developing countries alike. President has called on all of us to stand united in our efforts to contain COVID-19 and protect the lives of our people. As South Africans, let us face this crisis together with strength, resilience, empathy and selflessness.
