Iraq closes crossing with Iran due to Corona

Muhammad Jamil Al-Mayahi, the governor of Wasit in southern Iraq, announced today, Wednesday, the closure of the border port of Zurbatiya with Iran for 15 days, as part of precautionary measures against the Corona virus.
He said in an official letter addressed to the Border Ports Authority, that “due to the appearance and registration of suspected cases and injuries in Wasit Governorate, it has been decided to close the Zirbatiyah border crossing for a period of 15 days.”
He added, "This decision is one of the pre-emptive measures to prevent the transmission of Corona virus infection through foreign travelers and the commercial movement to preserve the health and safety of the people of the province."
Al-Mayyhi explained that “otherwise the Border Ports Authority bears full responsibility for the consequences of keeping the port open.”
