Tunis/Tunisia — A one-week general lockdown (June 21-27) has been decreed in 3 delegations in Beja governorate, namely North Beja, South Beja and Amdoun.

Banning gatherings, cultural activities and family ceremonies, and closing souks and shops, except for those selling food are also among the measures taken to stem the spread of the pandemic.
