JOHANNESBURG - Health Minister Joe Phaahla will give an update on the fight against Covid-19.

It comes just days after Cabinet approved changes to Level 1 regulations.

According to the changes, those who test positive with no symptoms don't have to self-isolate.

For the symptomatic, the isolation period has been reduced from 10 to 7 days.

Cabinet says this is because of the proportion of people with immunity, which has risen substantially.
