The Sudanese government on Monday decided to extend the full curfew in Khartoum State for two more weeks starting Tuesday to prevent COVID-19 spread.

“The Security and Defense Council has agreed on a recommendation by the Higher Committee for Health Emergencies to extend the curfew imposed on Khartoum State for two weeks more,” said the higher committee for health emergencies in a statement.

Restriction on domestic transport and the ban on travels between the capital and the states have also been extended, it added.
