Infectious diseases expert Professor Marc Mendelson says President Cyril Ramaphosa should also have abolished the limit on the number of people at outdoor gatherings.

Ranaphosa addressed the nation earlier this week, announcing changes to some of the level one lockdown regulations.

Mendelson says outdoor gatherings provide sufficient ventilation which has been proven to reduce the chances of spreading Covid-19.

He says the inconsistency of the adjusted regulations has left him baffled.

Mendelson says PCR-tests for people traveling to South Africa, regardless of whether they are vaccinated or not, should also be scrapped.
