SOUTH AFRICAN COURT GIVES GOVERNMENT 14 DAYS TO OVERHAUL LOCKDOWN REGULATIONS

A South African court has found some coronavirus lockdown regulations imposed by the government “unconstitutional and invalid.

The country has over 35,000 confirmed cases and more than 750 deaths, and so initially had some of the world’s most restrictive lockdown measures.

The judge picked out rules around funerals, informal workers and amount of exercise as “irrational”.

The case was filed by the Liberty Fighters Network and the Hola Bona Renaissance Foundation.

The government was given 14 days to overhaul the regulations.
