STO Super Mart – one of the prime traders providing delivery services amid total lockdown in Greater Male’ Region

Health Emergency Operations Center (HEOC) on Tuesday, 4 August, orders temporary halt on takeaway and delivery services after 22:00hrs.

On Tuesday afternoon, during HEOC’s urgent press conference, it made declaration of a curfew in Greater Male’ Region once again.

Moreover, HEOC confirms the curfew will remain effective from 22:00hrs every evening until 05:00hrs of the following morning.

State’s decision to place restrictive measures once again comes in light of spiking Covid-19 positive cases in the region.

Earlier, following government’s decision to lift-off restrictive measures takeaway and delivery services resumed in standard operational capacity.

However, following the alarming rate of positive case surge in Maldives capital and the region, state has made the decision to intervene.

Maldives reports over 4,200 positive cases inclusive of active cases and recoveries.
