COVID-19: Kurdistan Joins Iraq in Suspending Flights with India

ERBIL - The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) on Wednesday announced that it would suspend flights to and from India over the deteriorated situation of COVID-19 in the country.

'Travel and flights between the Kurdistan Region and India have been suspended,' Jotiar Adil, a spokesperson for the KRG, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday, one day after Iraq announced a temporary halt of flights with India for the same reasons.

The KRG spokesperson pointed out that 'individuals traveling from India to the Kurdistan Region will be required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.'

As of Wednesday, the death toll from COVID-19 in India exceeded 200,000 as the pandemic situation has worsened by shortages of hospital beds and medical oxygen.
