Watch: Sale of alcohol resumes in South Africa

There are long queues outside shops that sell alcoholic drinks in South Africa, now that from today the Government has allowed the resale of alcohol, as part of the relaxation of measures against the spread of Covid-19.

Authorities had stopped selling alcohol to allow hospitals to focus more on people sick with the virus, as drinking-related violence is common in this country.

During the lockdown hospitals and law enforcement reported a sharp drop in the number of people suffering injuries as a result of arguments, where those involved have imbibed alcohol.

As of today, people have been allowed to buy alcohol again, but they can only do so from Monday to Thursday between 8.00am and 5.00pm, and alcohol can only be drunk at home.
