Management of ill travelers at points of entry in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak
(ADVANCED VERSION 1.03 - 9th April 2020)
Under the International Health Regulations (IHR) 2005, public health authorities at international ports, airports and ground crossings are required to establish effective contingency plans and arrangements for responding to events that may constitute
a public health emergency of international concern and to communicate with their National IHR Focal Point about relevant public health measures.
The current outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) disease has spread across borders through travelers, conveyances, which has prompted demands for the detection and management of suspected cases at points of entry (POE), including ports, airports
and ground crossings, on board conveyances.
