Sierra Leonean President Julius Maada Bio announced on Tuesday that the country is scheduled to lift the ban on inter-district travel on Wednesday.
“We have had high recovery and discharge rates, lower infection rates, and proportionally lower death rates three months on,” Bio made the comments while announcing the lift of the ban on social media.
Bio also announced an adjustment of curfew in the country, which is from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., adding that the country’s commercial flights will resume in the very short run once all measures are in place.
Bio added that the authorities have developed comprehensive health and safety guidelines for teachers, pupils, and communities.
As of Tuesday, Sierra Leone had recorded 1,340 cases of COVID-19, with 55 deaths.
