Prime Minister: COVID-19 State of Emergency extended by one month

Wednesday, 15th April, 2020

MBABANE: Prime Minister Ambrose Mandvulo Dlamini said the State of Emergency that was announced about eight weeks ago shortly after the COVID-19 outbreak has been extended by one month.

Speaking during a press conference on Friday in Mbabane, the PM said this was aimed at strengthening all the mechanisms and processes of tackling the scourge of the COVID-19.

“I take this opportunity to thank all Emaswati who have borne the brunt of this virus through the various interventions that we have undertaken” he said. 

The PM said Government will continue to intensify screening, detection & testing mechanisms as a major strategy of containing the spread of the virus. He said the country has not yet reached a stage where it can be complacent or look to open up abruptly as that might put the lives of citizens at risk and undermine the gains made.

“The COVID19 regulations remain in force & we continue to expect full adherence to the partial lockdown measures” said the PM
