(Xinhua)    13:35, March 22, 2020

The Romanian government late Saturday declared a curfew and required citizens to stay at home as much as possible during daytime in the latest move to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Interior Minister Marcel Vela said the curfew will be imposed between 22:00 and 06:00 beginning Sunday, with the exemptions for professional reasons, shopping of daily necessities, and necessary medical services.

The minister also advised Romanians not to travel in groups of more than three who do not live together.

Meanwhile, malls and shopping centers will be closed from Sunday in Romania, while supermarkets, small shops and drug stores will be allowed to continue their operations, according to the authorities.

Romania reported 59 more cases on Saturday, bringing its total to 367. On Feb. 27, the East European country reported its first case involving a 20-year-old Romanian national infected by an Italian visitor.

The country entered a state of emergency on March 16 to curb the COVID-19 pandemic.
