In order to control the spreading of the COV-19 virus in Angola, all schools, universities, churches and other gathering places are closed for 2 weeks (as from 27/03/2020) with probable extension. The 5th case is confirmed on 28/03/2020 in Angola with the patients quarantined together with all persons who had been in contact with them.
The ports are closed only for passenger ships.
Cargo vessels can still enter the port and continue working but the crew will not be allowed to come down the gangway and go ashore.
Stevedores are advised to wear protective gloves and masks and restrict their contact with the crew to the strict minimum.
All maritime agencies and government offices are working.
Our local office is still operational and staff can also work from home.
