The numbers have steadily increased in recent weeks, and around 250 people are dying with Covid-19 each day.

Its nationwide curfew from 6pm to 6am – which has been in place for two months – will now begin an hour later.

A nationwide nightly curfew remains in place preventing people from leaving home except for work, emergency or health reasons.

The country is divided into red, orange, yellow and white zones, depending on local infection rates.
