"You can cycle, run and walk, but it will have to be within your neighbourhood - within about a 5km radius from your home. It will also be not under organised groups. You can't run as a club or group," says Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. 

Ministers on the coronavirus command council have been briefing the nation on new measures under level four of the lockdown. 

Dlamini-Zuma says they won't be lifting the ban on cigarette sales and other tobacco products after all. 

Adding that you still won't be allowed to buy alcohol. 

"Alcohol attracts crowds. Very few people enjoy drinking alone, they want to drink with other people. But besides that, it means that police can do what they need to do. The hospitals can look after the sick, not after the emergencies that come from the effects of alcohol," she says.
