Government has unveiled employment related plans expected to soften the blow of the COVID-19 countrywide lockdown, on workers and firms.

During the lockdown, which will come into effect on Thursday midnight until midnight 16 April, only essential services will be able to perform work as normal.

“A large cohort of the workers will remain at work in the emergency services,” said Employment and Labour Minister Thulas Nxesi during a press briefing on Tuesday.
