KATHMANDU: South Africa has imposed new restrictions, including another ban on alcohol sales, in a bid to stem coronavirus spread.

A night-time curfew has been imposed, and the wearing of masks outdoors has been made compulsory.

President Cyril Ramaphosa said the alcohol ban-South Africa’s second this year – would take pressure off the national healthcare system.

It comes as total infections exceed a quarter of a million.

Deaths resulting from coronavirus have also risen to more than 4,000, and government projections estimate this could rise to 50,000 by the end of the year.
