DTM tracked 75 locations including 19 displacement sites and 56 transportation hubs within the country and along international borders to report on COVID-19 related measures such as temperature screening and the availability of handwashing stations.
Of 19 displacement sites all were subjected to some form of risk communications, 17 (89%) made additional handwashing stations available and 3 (16%) screened temperatures at the gates. The movement of persons was stopped at a third of tracked in-country and border transit locations (18 locations of 32%). However, movement continued unhindered at 24 points (43%) with reports of alternative nearby routes being used at 8 (14%) and local movement by cross-border communities being tolerated at a further 6 locations (11%). Temperature screening was practiced at 10 locations (18%) while risk communication was made available at over half of tracked transit areas (33 locations or 59%). While handwashing stations had been constructed at 24 locations (43%), these were not put to use by travellers in all hubs.
