This Dashboard provides an analysis of the trends in population mobility observed at seven (7) ow monitoring points (FMPs), ve (5) established at unofficial border crossings in the province of Cibitoke (Kagazi Tr4, Kagazi Tr6, Kigazura, Ndava Tr6 and Rukana Tr1) and two (2) established at official border crossings in the province of Bujumbura Rural (Gatumba and Vugizo) between Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Over the reporting period, a total of 3,716 movements were observed at these points. This represents an increase of 239 per cent as compared to the daily average movements observed in October 2020, this was due to the resumption of ow monitoring on the Gatumba and Vugizo border crossing points. About 62 per cent of all movements were incoming and 38 per cent were outgoing, with all the movements travelling towards the Democratic Republic of the Congo, also the main country of origin for incoming movements. The migration movements tracked have decreased by 87% as compared to the daily average movements observed in March 2020 (28,348 movements), following the decision taken by the Burundian authorities to restrict movements into the country in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.
