Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu says President Cyril Ramaphosa will only update South Africans on Monday.

President Cyril Ramaphosa was due to address the nation on Sunday following several meetings about the coronavirus.

However, he's been locked in a meeting with the national command council dealing with Covid-19 that is expected to continue late into the night.

Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu says Ramaphosa has been discussing weighty matters with the council, including the socio-economic impact of the novel virus.

As of Saturday 21 March, a total of 240 South Africans have tested positive for the novel virus.

Last week Sunday, Ramaphosa declared the outbreak a state of national disaster and implemented stringent measures to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the country.
