The Government of Lesotho has extended the three-week nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus by 14 days until 05 May 2020. The country’s Prime Minister Thomas Thabane said in a televised address to the nation on 21 April 2020 that the Government will procure specialised equipment (oxygen ventilators, patient monitors and protective clothing for health facilities) and that mass testing in hospitals and high-risk areas will be carried out in Lesotho during the extended lockdown. As of now (22 April 2020), Lesotho is one of the few countries worldwide – and the only one in the southern Africa – that has not reported a coronavirus case.
