Rwandan Capital Placed Under Total Lockdown, Again

An acute surge in Covid-19 cases specifically in Kigali, has necessitated another lockdown. Under the new guidelines, citizens are urged to significantly reduce social interactions and limit trips outside the home to essential services which among others, include medical appointments, food shopping and banking. While city schools and tertiary institutions suspended classes for two weeks since January 17, schools outside Kigali will continue learning with adherence to the Covid-19 measures.
