Government allows worship places all over the country, except in Grand Lomé, to fully resume

(Togo First) - After being shut down for 8 months, places of worship, churches, and mosques notably, have been allowed to fully resume activity all over the country except in Grand Lomé which covers the Golfe and Agoè-Niyvé prefectures. These prefectures are the primary centers of the pandemic in Togo. 

The decision was taken on October 28, 2020, at a council of ministers. According to the meeting’s report, about Grand Lomé, given the rapid expansion of the pandemic in the region and the progressive reopening strategy, the council decides to allow only a limited number of worship places more to resume.”

The authorities warn that they will keep a close watch on the situation and will not hesitate to shut down worship places again if necessary. 

It is worth noting that over the few weeks, many voices, notably from the Togolese church observatory, have risen to protest the long closure of churches in the country.

Meanwhile, as of Oct. 28, Togo had 2,238 confirmed cases, 1,620 recoveries, 564 active cases, and 52 deaths.
