Sierra Leone is to impose a nationwide curfew and restrict travel in and out of the capital, Freetown, the Reuters news agency quotes the government as saying.
The restrictions are being imposed because of an exponential rise in Covid-19 cases after the holiday season.
From Monday, people wanting to leave Freetown and its surrounding area must present a recent negative Covid-19 test and their movements will be monitored by an electronic pass system, Reuters reports.
