Ministers to okay tighter lockdown at 8:30 p.m; rules not made public

Ministers will approve the new emergency regulations tightening the country’s lockdown to stem the coronavirus pandemic, even as citizens remain in the dark about what the new rules entail.

The government has yet to announce the new restrictions, but media reports say it will ban outdoor exercise and limit residents from strolling 100 meters away from their homes. It will also introduce new restrictions on restaurants and is expected to see public transportation scaled back, if not canceled entirely.
