The demand for bread has increased significantly ahead of nationwide 48-hour lockdown, said the head of the General Syndicate of Bakery Owners, Abd al-Ilah al-Hamwi, on Wedneday.

Al-Hamwi expects the demand to increase further on Thursday and called on citizens to only buy the amount of bread they need and not more. 

The government had announced a two-day total lockdown on Tuesday, to start at 12am on Friday until 12am on Sunday.
