Sierra Leone’s President Julius Maada Bio has reimposed a month-long nationwide curfew as part of new measures aimed at curbing rising Covid-19 cases. The country is grappling with a third wave, which the government says has seen both infections and fatalities rise exponentially.
Other measures include:
- congregational worship banned for a month,
- restaurants and bars to close at 9pm daily,
- funerals, weddings and all other social events will have a maximum of 50 participants.
