The increase in contagion in Iraq in June has prompted the government to re-implement some measures to restrict movement on its territory. The Ministry of Health announced that a partial curfew would be imposed from this Sunday to ban non-essential movements from 6:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with the exception of the Kurdistan Region.
