Rwanda

Rwanda’s post advises that in order to reinforce the measures aimed at combating the spread of COVID-19, the government has extended the lockdown declared in the capital, Kigali, and in eight other districts (Burera, Gicumbi, Kamonyi, Musanze, Nyagatare, Rubavu, Rwamagana and Rutsiro), until July 31, 2021. A travel ban is in place between Kigali and other provinces, as well as between other districts. This decision will remain in force until July 31, 2021, and in certain areas until Aug. 10, 2021. The post’s operational performance in Kigali and the other affected districts will be severely impacted by these measures, since they limit its processing and delivery resources and affect its capacity in terms of volume and quality of service.
