South African President Cyril Ramaphosa announced an end to the state of disaster he declared more than two years ago to manage the coronavirus pandemic.

Transitional measures, including the wearing of face masks at indoor public spaces and limits on gatherings, will remain in place until new regulations are promulgated next month, Ramaphosa said in a speech broadcast on state radio on Monday. The announcement enables all economic activity to continue as normal.
