TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) - Honduras has extended a curfew by one week through June 14 in order to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, security ministry spokesman Jair Meza said on Sunday.

Meza made the announcement on national television even as the Central American country is about to begin the gradual re-opening of its economy on Monday.
