(Niger) IOM steps up response for migrants stranded in Niger amidst COVID-19 lockdow

Originally published by UN – Africa Renewal on 01/04/2020


The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Niger is currently assisting 2,371 stranded migrants and because of the nationwide lockdown and 14-day quarantine period for anyone arriving in the country, IOM is concerned about an outbreak of COVID-19 in the transit centers in Niger. To prevent an outbreak, IOM has installed hand-washing stations and implemented checks, but there is overcrowding and the population includes vulnerable persons, including children and pregnant women. These factors, along with more arrivals from several other African countries, make quarantine and separation difficult.
