Points of Entry Situation Report 21

IOM and its partners are working to support Zimbabwe in strengthening core capacities for public health measures at points of entry (PoEs) and to provide critical services to returning migrants. As of the 2nd of February 2021, Zimbabwe recorded 33,814 cases of COVID-19 and 1,254 deaths. Between the 27th of January and the 2nd of February 2021 2,670 entries were received through the 4 key PoEs (Beitbridge, Chirundu, Forbes and Plumtree). This brings the total number of entries since March 2020 to 161,764. The period has been characterised by a large decrease of migrants and commercial traffic through PoEs due to the new lockdown measures introduced on January 5th.
