Rwanda Extends COVID-19 Lockdown

This is the second time that the government has extended the lockdown period - this time by 11 days. This is part of the social distancing measures to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. The country has been on lockdown since March 21 and will end on April 30 if infections are contained.
