Staring December 18, DRC will impose curfew as a preventive measure to check COVID-19 spread

The Democratic Republic of Congo will impose a curfew starting December 18 from 9 om to 5 am  

DR Congo’s Communication Minister Jolino Makelele announced this among new measures, including schools closing earlier for the Christmas holidays, a ban on ceremonies before burials and a ban on public gatherings of more than 10 people 

President Felix Tshisekedi had said earlier this week that the second wave of COVID-19 in the DRC  is caused mainly by the importation of cases from foreign countries and the relaxation of preventive measures.
