Prime Minister of the Republic of Congo Clement Mouamba announced on Wednesday in Brazzaville two new confirmed cases of coronavirus in the country.

The two new confirmed cases are a 37-year-old American national who arrived in Brazzaville on March 8, and a 46-year-old Congolese who came from Paris on March 12.

Faced with these two cases, which bring the country’s total number of confirmed cases of coronavirus to three, the government has taken a series of new measures aimed at protecting its people.

It involves the closure of public and private schools, churches and dancing bars on Thursday for 30 days. Meetings of more than 50 people are also prohibited.

These additional measures are renewable if necessary, said the prime minister.

Following the confirmation of the first case of coronavirus on March 14, the country has decided to suspend all the flights from COVID-19 high-risk countries from March 19 until further notice. Enditem
