Coronavirus - Rwanda: COVID-19 Update - 24 April 2020

Cases: 176 (22 new)

Tests today: 1,046

Recoveries: 87 (0 new)

Deaths: 0

Active cases: 89

This reflects a rise in cases of cross-border truck drivers and their assistants. All active cases are in isolation in stable condition.

The prevention measures announced by the Government of Rwanda must continue to be rigorously observed, especially frequent hand-washing and staying at home. In addition, face masks must be worn in public and in multi-family compounds.

Withholding information related to contact tracing or Covid-19 symptoms jeopardises public safety and will be punished in accordance with applicable laws.

The key symptoms of coronavirus are dry cough, shortness of breath, and fever. Automated screening is available by dialling *114#. Symptoms can also be reported to a medical professional, or as follows:

Phone: 114 (toll-free)
WhatsApp: +250 788 20 20 80
Email: callcenter@rbc.gov.rw

Let's continue to work together to defeat this pandemic.
