Ethiopia declares State of Emergency due to Coronavirus outbreak

In a way to curb the spread of coronavirus and to stop citizens from dying in Ethiopia, the Government of Ethiopia has declared a state of emergency.

The country’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed made the announcement on Wednesday, saying the decision was made following intense consultations with the opposition politicians.


“Considering the gravity of the COVID-19, the government of Ethiopia has enacted a State of Emergency according to Article 93 of the Constitution,” he said.

“This decision is not one that we decide for today’s generation. We’re taking it for our kids too. It is not only what we take in Ethiopia today, it is a decision that we will also decide on tomorrow,” he added.
