South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has eased some restrictions imposed due to coronavirus, including lifting an unpopular ban on alcohol sales.

Beaches will reopen and limited religious gatherings will be allowed.

The announcement came as Ramaphosa hailed the arrival of the first shipment of vaccines – one million AstraZeneca doses – as a chance to turn the tide on Covid-19.

South Africa has had the most Covid19 infections and deaths on the continent.

More than 1.4 million people have contracted the virus since the pandemic began, and 44,164 are known to have lost their lives.
