Angola: Luanda Authorities Shut Down Warehouses in Viana

Luanda — Several warehouses and shops, located in the commercial area of the Estalagem Urban District, in the municipality of Viana, Luanda, were closed this Thursday for non-compliance with measures against the spread of covid-19.

In a statement to Angop, the administrator of Estalagem Urban District, Eduardo Fernando, said the decision was taken after a meeting with the multi-sector committee, at Luanda level.

Without specifying the number of warehouses and stores shut down, he said the lack of hygiene and the excessive agglomeration of customers add to the reasons that led to the closure of these sales locations.

The reopening, according to administrator Eduardo Fernando, will depend on compliance with the sanitation and social distancing measures required by the commission to prevent covid-19, at Luanda level.

The warehouses located on the section that connects the national road 230 (next to the District of Viana) to the Suave area are not covered by the measure.

For the same reasons, several markets have already been closed in the municipality of Viana, some of which were reopened after compliance with the guidelines of the local and health authorities.
