An extraordinary cabinet meeting chaired by President Paul Kagame on Tuesday, June 2, approved the resumption of inter-provincial travel and passenger taxi-moto services except in Rusizi and Rubavu districts.
The resolutions that take immediate effect, follow a recent assessment of the Covid-19 prevalence in the country, which revealed that Rusizi - which borders DR Congo- had community Covid-19 cases.
In the past two days, the district recorded at least 12 cases that, according to the Ministry of Health, involved cross-border traders, truck-drivers and a motorcyclist who transported goods.
"Public and private transport between provinces shall resume except movement to and from Rusizi and Rubavu district," reads parts of the statement published by the Prime Minister's Office on Wednesday, June 3.
All latest measures will be reviewed after 15 days upon a health assessment, according to the statement from the Office of the Prime Minister.
