Haiti — Flow Monitoring in Response to COVID-19 - SitRep #23 ( 7- 20 September 2020)
Sep 20 2020
- Flow Monitoring
In response, the Government of Haiti has communicated many important instructions to minimize the spread of the dis- ease, particularly: closure of schools and factories, closure of airports and ports to passengers, banning of meetings of more than 10 people, nationwide curfew between 20:00 and 5:00 and plea for social distancing guidelines to be respected. Some of these restrictions were lifted or modified by the Haitian government as of 30 June 2020. At present, 8,633 cases of infection, 223 deaths and 6,482 recoveries have been confirmed in Haiti.
IOM has adapted its ongoing Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) initiative along the Haiti– Dominican Republic border to support the ongo- ing preparedness and response. The Flow Monitoring initiative is being carried out in 50 Border Crossing Points between Haiti and the Do- minican Republic: 46 unofficial points and 4 official points in collaboration with the Support Group for the Repatriated and Refugees (GARR in French), Jesuit Services to Migrants (SJM in French) and Jano Siksè Border Network (RFJS in Haitian Creole).
