BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Transport Minister ‘Ali Hammound announced this evening that they will be halting all flights to and from Syria amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

According to Hammoud, the last flight to Syria will take place on Sunday; it is a schedule flight from Moscow to Damascus International Airport.

The Syrian Transport Minister did not provide any details regarding the time frame that Syria would be closed off to air transport.

The minister added that an additional period was given to all airports that were decided to close, and this was not surprising, and training courses were suspended for all workers in the Ministry of Transport.

While the Syrian Health Ministry says there are no confirmed cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Syria, they have taken several precautions t.o prevent the illness from possibly spreading if it reaches the country.
