Rwandan police shot and killed two people who defied lockdown orders imposed by the government to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
The two men in their twenties “attempted to tussle with officers,” Rwanda National Police representative John Bosco Kabera said by phone Wednesday.
According to Bloomberg Rwanda started a fourteen day lockdown on March 22, limiting travel among towns and urban areas and requesting that people stay inside.
Its measures are among the most stringent in Africa.
The East African nation has 40 confirmed Covid-19 cases.
