Ramadan: Algeria relaxes lockdown measures for Ramadan

Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune has ordered the government to gradually lift the lockdown measures on the eve of Muslims’ holy month, Ramadan, due to an improved COVID-19 situation.

In a message delivered to the nation, Tebboune congratulated Algerians on the occasion of the holy fasting month of Ramadan, which starts on Friday.


He said; “I have issued instructions to review the quarantine procedure in line with the progress of the situation on the ground.”

“The more indicators show improvement here and there, the closer we will be to returning to our normal life,” Tebboune said, urging people to observe the confinement measures in a bid to get over the COVID-19 pandemic as soon as possible.

Tebboune added; “We have managed, so far, to narrowing the spread of the pandemic,” while urging “more solidarity and synergy, as well as the highest degree of discipline, patience and vigilance” in the Algerian people.


Shortly after the president’s national speech, Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad announced lifting the total lockdown at the Blida province, the epicentre of the novel coronavirus outbreak, while replacing it with a partial lockdown from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. the next day.

Algeria, currently has a total of 3,007 confirmed cases of COVID-19. 407 deaths and 1,355 recoveries.
