South Africa is increasing its Covid-19 restrictions to try and fight a surge in recent infections.

A nightly curfew is to be extended meaning non-essential shops, bars and restaurants, will be forced to close by 22:00 (20:00GMT).

President Cyril Ramaphosa said further restrictions were necessary to ensure that health facilities were not overwhelmed.

South Africa has recorded more than 56,000 deaths and more than 1.5 million – more than any other Africa nation.

Only about 1.5% of the country’s 60 million people have so far received a vaccine.
