Iraq Curfew to Slow the spread of Coronavirus

The Cabinet held its regular weekly meeting in Baghdad on Tuesday under the chairmanship of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Oil, Thamir Ghadhban. The Cabinet received a detailed briefing from the Minister of Health on the range of new measures being implemented to contain COVID-19. These measures include: 1) Declaring a curfew in Baghdad for a week starting on 17 March, 2) Directing relevant authorities to fumigate and disinfect several areas and districts, 3) Authorising governors to impose curfews in their provinces, 4) Suspending flights for a week from 17 March, 5) Increasing internet bandwith/capacity, and, 6) Banning travel between Iraqi provinces. The Cabinet reassured the public that deliveries of food, fuel, medicine, other essentials as well as the imports of goods into Iraq, are unaffected by the curfews.
