JOHANNESBURG, Nov 11 (Reuters) - South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Wednesday that travel to all international countries will be permitted pending strict health protocols, despite having the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases on the continent.

“We are also opening up international travel to all countries subject to the necessary health protocols and the presentation of a negative COVID-19 certificate,” said Ramaphosa during a national address.

Africa‘s most advanced economy, which has recorded more than 740,000 coronavirus infections and nearly 20,000 deaths, eased lockdown restrictions to their lowest level in September as the rate of new cases fell.
