Togo has followed the examples of Ghana and Nigeria by imposing a lockdown in their country to curb the coronavirus. Well in their case they chose to call it a curfew because it’s a ‘state of emergency’ and it’s for a whopping 3-months. 

Togo has so far recorded 36 confirmed infections and two deaths from the disease.
Gnassingbe said in a televised address late Wednesday that the unprecedented move was “proof of the gravity of the situation that we face”.
