The Samoan government has extended its Covid-19 State of Emergency until 26 October.
The Samoa Observer reported the weekend announcement by Cabinet will take the country into the seventh month of restrictions despite Samoa not having recorded any cases of coronavirus.
The extension was met with an appeal for common sense in government decision-making from some sectors of the business community.

Cabinet also approved the opening of private pharmacies on Sundays.
The current orders that prohibited Sunday ferry services between Savai'i and Upolu remained.
