U-turn: Ministry of Health denies lifting ban on concerts

“The Ministry of Health would like to state that entertainment centers or concerts have NOT BEEN OPENED as is being portrayed in sections of the media. All bars, night clubs, and discotheques remain closed,” the Ministry mentioned in a tweet.

The Ministry’s remarks come shortly after epidemiologists urged the government to institute a lockdown throughout the festive season. Therefore, through this move, the Ministry of Health, therefore, believes that it will curb the spread of the virus.
