In the bid to prevent the spread of Coronavirus around the world, many countries including Chad are beginning to take measures to further protect their citizens.
The pandemic has exterminated over 7,000 people globally, and the north-central African country’s (Chad) government is not taking any chances with the lives of their citizens.
According to a recent statement by Chad’s government earlier today, the new measure will start at midnight on Thursday though the ban does not apply to planes transporting goods.
The government further called on “Chadians living abroad and wanting to return to the country do so within the required time-frame”.
“The land borders remain open apart from those with Sudan and the Central African Republic,” the statement went further to reveal. The borders with those two conflict-plagued countries had been closed before the outbreak of the deadly virus in China in December.
The government also said it would “strictly limit movement outside refugee camps,” which is home to about 465,000 refugees.
