COVID-19: Niger Govt issues warning as worship places reopen

Niger Republic has announced the end of a night-time curfew on the capital Niamey and reopening of places of worship.

The churches and religious gatherings were closed since late March as part of measures to contain the coronavirus (Covid-19).

The religious leaders have been required to disinfect places of worship before prayers, observe strict wearing of mask and maintaining physical distancing of at least a metre.

However, they warned citizens that the curfew could be imposed again if the situation becomes worse.

Niger since the outbreak of coronavirus has recorded 854 cases with 47 deaths.
