Algeria lifts travel restrictions, shortens curfew
Algerian government has announced plan to further ease its coronavirus lockdown from Sunday by shortening an overnight curfew and lifting some travel restrictions.
Algeria resumed some economic activity, mainly in the construction and public works sectors, and allowed the reopening of some businesses in June.
The government in a statement said the new measures include lifting a travel ban between 29 provinces until the end of the month.
A curfew for those provinces will be shortened to 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. during the same period.”
The authorities in July ended curfew and travel restrictions for the remaining 19 provinces.
