The Federal Government of Nigeria has reintroduced nationwide COVID-19 restrictions in the country, starting from 12am in the early hours of Tuesday, May 11.

Dr Mukhtar Mohammed, a member of the Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) on COVID-19, made the announcement while briefing reporters on Monday, May 10, in Abuja.

Mohammed, who is the Head of Technical Secretariat of the PSC, said the government has directed that bars and nightclubs should remain closed and the nationwide 12am to 4am curfew to curtail further spread of COVID-19 will be in force until further notice.

He added that mass gatherings in public spaces have been restricted to 50 people at any given time.

Access to government institutions would also be denied to anyone not wearing a face mask while government meetings and travels have been limited to the virtual platform.

He added that only essential international travels would be encouraged, and all existing protocols must be strictly adhered to.

However, he stated that there was no limitation to intra-state travel.
