This address by the President is the first since June 17 when he announced the move to Level 3 – and follows a meeting of the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) and the Cabinet, and lengthy consultations with the government’s scientific advisers. It comes at the time when the country has seen a surge in a number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths.
Some analysts believe that the President may announce the reintroduction of tighter regulations on the sale of alcohol, limiting interprovincial movement, and more.
