This is according to President Cyril Ramaphosa during a national address on Sunday night.

He said this was to make sure that hospital beds were not taken up “by those who come in resulting from alcohol-induced trauma or injuries”.

“There is now clear evidence that the resumption of alcohol sales has resulted in substantial pressure being put on hospitals, including trauma and ICU units, due to motor vehicle accidents, violence as well as trauma that is alcohol-induced,” said Ramaphosa.
