Suriname lifts curfew imposed as part of COVID measures


(CMC) – Suriname, will from Monday, lift the curfew imposed as part of the measures aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that has killed 1,310 and infected 77,716 others in the Dutch-speaking Caribbean island since March 2020.

Health Minister Amar Ramadhin said maintaining the lockdown makes no sense now because the curfew does not make any additional contribution to the current wave. The authorities said that the ban on people gathering has been increased from 10 to 50 but that parties remain prohibited and that clubs, among other things, are still not allowed to open.

Justice and Police Minister Kenneth Amoksi and Police Commissioner Orlando Jacott said as a result of the new measures, the authorities will step up their control and enforcement.

Amoksi appealed to society not to abuse the relaxation and to behave responsibly.
