Iraq extends curfew for another week as it crosses 11,000 Coronavirus cases

 

Iraqi authorities have decided to extend the incumbent curfew to another week after the total number of COVID-19 cases in the country jumped to more than 11,000.

On Saturday, Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi has made this decision after a meeting by the Higher Committee for Health and National Safety.

Al-Kadhimi’s media office said in a statement that the committee took several measures including continuation of the current full curfew until June 13, and then replacing it with a partial curfew on June 14 from 6 pm to 5 am.

The restrictions included preventing people from going outside without wearing masks.

Food and vegetable shops, bakeries and pharmacies are allowed to open, the statement added.
