According to media reports, the Egyptian government has extended the nationwide curfew by two weeks to 23 April.

Curfew hours will begin one hour later, at 8pm, and run until 6am to help avoid crowding during rush-hours.

Under the curfew, shopping malls and other commercial centres will be required to close by 5pm and they will be closed all day on weekends.

A closure of schools and universities and the suspension of flights will also be extended to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The night-time curfew was first enacted on March 25.
