On Monday February 14, 2022, the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) announced the lifting of the curfew and the easing of the restrictive measures required in the context of the containment Covid-19.
The decision concerning the lifting of the curfew and the easing of restrictive measures, results from the evolution of the disease in the country, said the Minister of Media, the spokesperson of the Congolese government, Mister Patrick MUYAYA. He expressed himself on the subject, after a meeting held with the President of the DRC, Félix TSHISEKEDI, and thus affirmed the implementation of the “immediate lifting of the curfew in the country, except for the provinces under state of emergency”, therefore North Kivu and Ituri. Dr. Jean-Jacques MUYEMBE, the head of pandemic containment experts in DRC, added that, the fourth wave caused by the Omicron variant is behind Congolese people.
Indeed, the presentation of negative PCR tests for travelers is no longer required, in particular for vaccinated people. But the government spokesperson reminded to Congolese people that this decision “does not mean the end of the pandemic” within the nation.
Certain health measures will continue to be applied, in order to avoid the risk of experiencing a fifth wave of coronavirus. However, wearing a mask remains mandatory in public places, in particular, offices, schools, churches, markets, banks, places of sport events, health structures, etc.
Note that, the DRC ordered in December 2021, a curfew to limit the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. And among the 90 million inhabitants of the country, “254 000” people have been totally vaccinated against Covid-19. About 1,355 people have officially died from the disease in the country.
