No positive coronavirus cases have been identified at the Pak-Iran border quarantine centre. The people would be sent back home after staying in the established quarantine centre for a week.
There were fears that travellers travelling from Iran would be bringing in the coronavirus with them so Pakistan has closed the border and have placed all the arrivals in the quarantine.
The PDMA says that many people have finished a full week in the quarantine and have tested negative for the coronavirus. More than 2,000 would be sent to Quetta. Till date, the number of people who have crossed the border into Pakistan has been recorded at 4,000.
A quarantine centre has been established in Quetta where 3,000 people could stay. It was set up after Pakistan House ran out of space. People would be taken there in more than thirty buses.
The PDMA says that once the people arrive in Quetta they would then be screened again.

Iran has officials given confirmation of 145 deaths and more than 6,000 cases.
