In Lebanon’s latest efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 in Lebanon, it will be implementing new travel restrictions as recommended by the national coronavirus committee.
For an unspecified period of time, Lebanon will issue a travel ban on people coming from Brazil and India due to an influx of COVID-19 cases these countries are currently experiencing.
Travelers from Brazil or India arriving in Lebanon through the airport or by sea will not be allowed to enter unless they spent the last 14 days in a transit country, according to NNA.
India is overwhelmed with its COVID-19 crisis, with well over 360,960 cases reported in the last 24 hours alone. The country’s coronavirus count has crossed 18 million. Meanwhile, Brazil is nearing a 400,000 death toll.
Additionally, Lebanon announced new restrictions for the upcoming Orthodox Easter holiday. More can be expected towards the end of Ramadan for Eid el-Fitr.
