South Africa has introduced new restrictions, including another ban on alcohol sales, to help contain the spread of coronavirus.

 

A night-time curfew has been imposed, and the wearing of masks outdoors is now compulsory.

 

President Cyril Ramaphosa said the alcohol ban - South Africa's second this year - would take pressure off the national healthcare system.

 

It comes as total infections exceed a quarter of a million.

 

Deaths resulting from coronavirus have also risen to more than 4,000, and government projections estimate this could rise to 50,000 by the end of the year.
