Hadhramout is going to be the first Yemeni governorate to apply a partial curfew in precaution against the novel coronavirus.
While no case of the pandemic has been registered across the war-torn country, according to WHO, governor Faraj al-Bohsoni decided on Tuesday to impose curfew in all the Yemeni southeastern governorate's districts starting Thursday.
Under the decision, movement of civilians and traffic inside all Hadhramout areas will be banned from 4 pm to 4 am, as of 2 April.
A later advice will state whether the curfew would last for days or weeks, the governor's decree said.
General Bohsoni ordered military and security leaders in all districts to develop a strict plan to impose the curfew, and called people to adhere to the limitation hours for their safety against the epidemic.
Medical teams and emergency commitment are exempted from the curfew so that to boost full preparedness at their respective sites, according to the decree.
