Rwanda has reimposed a lockdown in its capital, Kigali, as it battles a second wave of coronavirus cases.

In a statement, the Rwandan government said it has been compelled to take the action due to   “unprecedented deaths and transmission rates”.

The statement said all movements outside homes in the capital will require an approved permit from the police, except for essential service providers.

Travel between Kigali and other provinces and districts will not be permitted, except for essential services and tourism.

Tourists must have Covid-19 negative certificates.
