South Africa: ‘Too early to Open Churches for Worship’ – Archbishop Stephen Brislin

“After a great deal of discussion, dialogue and seeking advice, I believe it is unwise, at this time, to open our churches for public worship,” Archbishop Stephen Brislin of Cape Town says.

In his Wednesday, June 3 statement seen by ACI Africa, Archbishop Brislin says that “the trajectory of the Covid-19 virus in South Africa is still upwards. The recommendation is usually that the infection rate should be going downwards before lockdown restrictions are eased.”

South Africa has has recorded at least 35,812 COVID-19 cases, 17,291 recoveries, and 705 related deaths.
