The Rwandan government has announced that movements between the capital city Kigali and the rest of the country will be prohibited from tomorrow, Wednesday except for essential services and goods transportation, as a response to the recent rise of COVID-19 infections.

The cabinet also decided to cut off movements between nationwide districts, said a cabinet communiqué issued by Office of the Prime Minister. The curfew hours are extended by two more hours, starting from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m., according to the communiqué. “For the past 12 days, our country has recorded a sharp increase in COVID-19 infections. Rwandans need to remain vigilant and observe COVID-19 preventive guidelines,” Sabin Nsanzimana, director general of Rwanda Biomedical Center, told the media.

Rwandans have become complacent about COVID-19 preventive measures, which has led to a spike in infections and transmission rates, he noted. The central African nation on Sunday reported 622 new cases, bringing the national tally to 31,435
