May 31 2020
- Flow Monitoring
This Dashboard provides an analysis of the trends in population mobility observed at nine (9) flow monitoring points (FMPs), including seven (7) new FMPs established at unofficial border crossings between Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo at Ruhwa, Rubenga, Kaburantwa Tr6, Kagazi Tr4, Kagazi Tr6, Kigazura, Ndava Tr6, Rukana Tr1 and Rusiga Tr10. Over the reporting period, a total of 410 movements were observed at these points. About 60 per cent of all movements were incoming and 40 per cent were outgoing, with all the movements travelling towards the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the main country of origin for incoming movements. It was observed that the movements had decreased significantly since the end of March, following the decision taken by the Burundian authorities to restrict movements in the country in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19. Despite this, a few movements were also observed at the the two FMPs located along the official border crossings (Rubenga and Ruhwa) during the month of May.
