Angola: Covid-19 - State of Public Calamity Up to September 8th

Luanda — The State of Public Calamity that Angola lives since May 26, scheduled to end on Thursday (August 14), should be in force until September 8th, due to its extension, Saturday by the national authorities.

The announcement was made this Saturday by the Minister of State and Head of the Civil House of the President of the Republic, Adão de Almeida, underlining that the decision is the result of the vertiginous increase of positive cases in the country and the need to control its spread.

Speaking at a press conference on the subject, he said that during this period the measures will be strictly enforced, with offenders risking heavy fines, like violators of home quarantine (250 to 300 kwanzas).
