In a statement to the press at the end of a fact-finding visit to the police station that delimits the provinces of Zaire and Bengo, the governor stressed that only hardening measures will prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic throughout the country.

He said he left with a good impression for having noticed, on the spot, the arrest of two truck drivers who were on the Luanda/Zaire route and vice versa, accompanied by two citizens, alleged violators of sanitary cordon of the capital.

He announced that the provincial government will, in the near future, assess the process of issuing and distributing credentials to national citizens allowed travelling from Luanda to Zaire and vice versa.
