As the country's Covid-19 numbers continue their downward trajectory, it's widely expected that President Cyril Ramaphosa will on Wednesday announce a countrywide move to lockdown level 1.

On Monday, less than 1 000 new coronavirus cases were recorded, compared daily cases of between 10 000 and 15 000 cases a day at the height of the pandemic back in July.

But is the country is ready to relax restrictions even further, and what can we expect from a level 1 lockdown?

Refilwe Moloto posed those questions to epidemiologist Dr Jody Boffa.
