Within these measures, several countries like Jordan,Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, have cut travel to Lebanon among other infected places.
The latest Arab country to ban travel to and from Lebanon is Iraq.

Iraq has also set a deadline for its nationals in Lebanon to return home, and that is 15 March, while it has excluded evacuation flights from India from the ban.
