South Sudan Gov’t unveils new Covid-19 restrictions
The new statements came after a rise of covid-19 cases in the nation.
The instructions also include a prohibition on big and social gatherings throughout the nation. On Wednesday, an official at the Ministry of Health warned that the nation may soon suffer a third wave of the coronavirus owing to a significant rise in cases in recent weeks.
This is after 23 additional new cases were verified this week.
Last week, the ministry of health reported 120 instances throughout the nation, among whom twenty are students.
However, the Vice President for Service Cluster claims the additional limitations are intended at limiting the spread of the latest delta version.
The curfew is applicable as of yesterday, Friday forward from 10pm until 7am.
Hussein Abdelbaggi also warns of the potential national lockdown if instances rise in the following days.
“Today, I announce the commencement of the night curfew from ten in the evening. We do not want any movements throughout the night and we do not want any night gatherings. Even marriages are banned,” stated VP Abdelbaggi.
“For those who wish to have a wedding celebration they must seek our approval, adhere to health precautions and the instructions and procedures of the Ministry of Health, they must follow these regulations.”
“If they continue without following these instructions and steps we will be obliged to impose a lockdown and this must be obvious for every citizen.”
