The authorities in South Sudan say a partial lockdown, brought in to reduce the spread of Covid-19, will remain in place for another month.
Schools and universities will remain closed, while social gatherings - including religious and sporting events - remain banned.
The partial lockdown will run until 3 April, according to the head of the Covid-19 national taskforce, Hussein Abdelbagi Akol.
He termed the extension as "necessary to prevent wider spread of the Covid-19 across the country".
Mr Abdelbagi directed law enforcement agencies to enforce the measures and ensure that violators face penalties.
On Wednesday, South Sudan confirmed 109 new cases and three deaths, bringing the total cases to 8,414, and 100 deaths.
