Rwanda reimposes lockdown over ‘unprecedented’ Covid-19 infections

Rwanda has reimposed a lockdown in its capital, Kigali, as it battles a second wave of coronavirus cases.

In a statement, the Rwandan government said it has been compelled to take the action due to   “unprecedented deaths and transmission rates”.

The statement said all movements outside homes in the capital will require an approved permit from the police, except for essential service providers.

Travel between Kigali and other provinces and districts will not be permitted, except for essential services and tourism.

Tourists must have Covid-19 negative certificates.

Public transport is also prohibited and all employees in public and private sector shall work from home except for those providing essential services.

Places of worship and learning institutions will also be closed.

The government has also increased the hours of a nationwide night-time curfew to now start at 18:00 local time to 04:00.

Rwanda has recorded more than 1,000 new cases of coronavirus with 22 fatalities within the past week.


The country has so far confirmed 11,259 cases with 146 deaths.
