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 movements which took place on 11 October 2020 in the town of Ounianga Kébir, located in Ennedi-Ouest Province, near the Libyan border. 

Following their deportation from Libya, 42 individuals of Chadian nationality (including 8 women and 4 children) arrived in the town of Ounianga Kébir (Ennedi-Ouest province) on 11 October 2020. Upon arrival, these individuals were placed in quarantine, in accordance with the measures taken by the Chadian authorities to prevent and contain the spread of COVID-19. Fourty of the 129 individuals who were in quarantine at this location (see ETT report # 76) are still quarantined, while the remaining 89 have returned home upon completion of their quarantine period. In total, 82 individuals are currently in quarantine in Ounianga Kébir. Deportation movements from Libya to Ounianga Kébir have been observed since mid-April 2020. Individuals deported from Libya often arrive in Chad in a highly vulnerable state. As reported in the Deportee Profile Report, they were mainly expulsed from North-Eastern Libya.
