The SunOnline report citing Director-General of Public Health Maimoona Aboobakuru as said that all islands under monitoring over COVID-19 will be placed under a curfew from 9:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. There are currently 72 islands in the Maldives under the monitoring state.

Under the order signed by Aboobakaru on Tuesday, individuals on the involved islands can not go outdoors or visit other households during the curfew hours. Meanwhile, salons and gyms will be closed in areas under curfew, and cafes and restaurants banned from dine-in services.

On Monday, the Health Emergency Operations Center (HEOC) announced the curfew in the national capital Male will be extended for four hours, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. beginning May 26 for a period of two weeks. The local residents should not violate the curfew without a pass, authorities said.
