This follows a steady decline in the number of daily COVID-19 cases.

The president says public places like beaches, dams, rivers, public pools and parks will be reopened, while the hours of the curfew will now be from 11pm to 4am.

Another 500,000 doses of the vaccine are to be expected later this month.
