Summary

The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is to collect information on large and sudden population movements. Information is collected through key informant interviews or direct observation. This dashboard presents information on a movement which took place on 14 November 2020 in the town of Ounianga Kébir, located in Ennedi-Ouest Province, near the Libyan border. 

Following their deportation from Libya, 84 individuals (all men, including 3 minors and 3 persons with a physical disability) of Chadian nationality arrived in the town of Ounianga Kébir (Ennedi-Ouest province) on 14 November 2020. Most of them indicated that they were taken prisoner in Libya prior to their deportation. Upon arrival, they were placed in quarantine, in accordance with measures taken by the Chadian authorities to prevent and contain the spread of COVID-19. It should be mentioned that 54 individuals are already quarantined at this location (see ETT report #84). In total, 138 individuals are currently in quarantine in Ounianga Kébir. Since mid-April 2020, 1,031 individuals have been deported from Libya to Ounianga Kébir. They often arrive in Chad in a highly vulnerable state. As reported in the Deportee Profile Report, they were mainly expulsed from North-Eastern Libya.
