A new decree was issued by the health ministry on Wednesday with immediate effect banning car sales but offering exemptions from the lockdown in a few other instances, including for divorced parents..

The decree stipulates that from 6am Wednesday to 6am on April 13, the sale of all motor vehicles is suspended.

Exempted from the lockdown of retail business, will be companies that deal with medical equipment and supplies, and companies that trade in auto spare parts.

A new exemption from the restrictions on movement of the public, will be divorced (or separated) parents “so that there is uninterrupted communication between parents and children”.
