Coronavirus: Chad Shuts Down Airports Amid The Absence Of The Disease Record.

The Government of Chad has agreed to shut its airports on all flights for two weeks in the face of concerns that COVID-19 could spread even though no cases have yet been identified.

The decision was taken on Monday with the government of the North Central African nation announcing that the measure would begin at midnight on Thursday.

It was also stated in the announcement that the prohibition would not extend to aircraft carrying items.

The government called on “Chadians residing abroad and wishing to return to the country to do so within the time-frame necessary.”

“The land boundaries remain open apart from those with Sudan and the Central African Republic,” he added in a statement. The borders with these two conflict-ridden countries were closed prior to the outbreak of the deadly virus in China in December.

The government has announced that it will “strictly restrict travel beyond refugee settlements,” which is host to 465,000 refugees.

No coronavirus cases have been registered in Chad so far.
