Lourenco who was speaking to the press on the sidelines of the inauguration ceremony of a new emergency service of Luanda Pediatric Hospital, cited the example of other countries, which have stepped back in the decision to ease the measures.

“Angola is not special. Angola can be different, always depending on our behaviour, our attitude,” Lourenco said.

According to him, the relief of the measures to prevent and combat the pandemic depends on the behaviour of the citizens.

“If the deconfinement is gradual and responsible, with responsibility of the citizens to continue wearing the masks, washing their hands frequently, keeping the distance between people, we can do the deconfinement without the great risk of increasing the positive cases, therefore everything depends on us,” the president said.
