Egypt and Syria on Tuesday decided to impose a nocturnal curfew starting on Wednesday, to prevent the spread of coronavirus, following in the footsteps of other five Arab countries.

The two-week curfew will come into force from 7 pm until 6 am local time (17:00 – 04:00 GMT), Egyptian Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly said during a televised press conference.
