The Minister of State and Chief of Staff of the President of the Republic, Adão de Almeida, who spoke about the new measures to be adopted in the country, in the scope of the combat and prevention actions against covid-19, said that for those who train with a personal trainer only five people are allowed, with due respect for physical or social distancing.

"Violation of these rules, whether the schedule for physical exercise on the public spaces or the gathering of up to five people, is subject to a penalty ranging from 5,000 kwanzas to 10,000 kwanzas", he said.

Regarding competitions and sports training, Adão de Almeida said that they will remain closed in Luanda and in the Municipality of Cazengo.

The set of measures contained in the Presidential Decree, signed by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, results from the conclusions of a meeting he held last Tuesday, with the Multisectoral Commission for the Prevention and Combat to Covid-19.

Angola recorded, in the last 24 hours, 33 new positive cases and two deaths by Covid-19. With that, the country now has 386 infections, 117 recovered patients and 21 deaths and 248 active cases. Of these, 9 were registered in the Municipality of Cazengo, north-central province of Cuanza Norte.
