Meanwhile, e

arlier this month, minister of international relations and co-operation Naledi Pandor explained that the reopening of ports and borders would be done while following the World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines on public health.

“The gradual reopening of borders and ports of entry informed by a cautious approach means that a limited number of ports of entry will be opened,” said Pandor.

“By reopening these selected ports of entry and borders, we will be guided by the epidemiological and transmission rate both in SA and travellers’ countries of origin.”
