“Further Covid-19 measures will be announced by Cabinet on Tuesday 2 June,” a tweet from the Rwandan Prime Minister’s office read.
The new move is linked to the country’s first recorded death from the virus and a spike in cases over the weekend.
Health minister told state broadcaster that the decision was because of the new cases reported in the western Rusizi district.
On the last day of May 2020, Rwanda recorded 11 new cases on the same day the first casualty was buried in the outskirts of Kigali.
Rwanda was among the first countries on the continent to impose a strict lockdown in the arly days of the virus’ arrival.
