Central Tripoli Municipality calls for curfew as people continue to ignore anti-Coronavirus tips

The Municipality of Central Tripoli has called on the Head of the Libyan Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj to declare curfew for a certain period of time every day as a preventive procedure against the outbreak of Coronavirus.

The Municipality said Wednesday in a letter to Al-Sarraj that the curfew should be announced as soon as possible for the safety of the people.

The letter laments the lack of cooperation and commitment on the side of the people regarding the tips and precautionary measures against Coronavirus.

Libya declared the state of emergency on Saturday over concerns of the outbreak of Coronavirus. The Head of the Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj said the government had allocated half a billion dinars to confront the COVID-19 disease, instructing all borders be shut down for three weeks starting March 16.

Libya’s Foreign Ministry formed earlier a follow-up committee to confront any possible outbreak of Coronavirus in the country. The committee is headed by Al-Tellisi and Deputy Foreign Minister for Financial and Administrative Affairs, Hamza Al-Oukli.
