The country moved to Level 4 lockdown as of Friday, May 1. The lockdown was imposed by the government to curb the rapid spread of the coronavirus.

Level 4 lockdown will see many more returning to work, including agricultural workers, and those who work in the retail clothing industry.

Food agriculture and services including livestock farming will be allowed to operate and the export of agricultural good will also be allowed.
