Authorities in Iraq's Mosul province have decided to lockdown the city and ban all domestic traffic as part of new measures against the new coronavirus.


According to a statement by Mosul Governorate, the new measures will be put into effect on Sunday and Monday, this week, during which a campaign to spray anti-coronavirus disinfectant in markets in Mosul will also be conducted.


The ban would reportedly be extended, the statement further explained, noting that no traffic will be allowed from 5:00 pm to 6:00 am (local time) across the province.
This came as nearly 100 cases of the coronavirus have already been recorded in Iraq and the Kurdistan Region.
