Senegalese president lifts state of emergency


Senegalese President Makcy Sall said Monday night that, starting from 11 p.m. Tuesday, the state of emergency and the related curfew will be lifted across the country.

Due to the high risk of COVID-19 spreading, enclosed places hosting leisure activities will remain closed, Sall added during his televised address.

Sall’s decision to lift the state of emergency is seen as part of the government’s effort to relaunch the economy that has been dramatically affected by the pandemic.
