Timeline and information

Iraq was one of the latest countries to act in their fight against the coronavirus. On the 17th of March, the government announced the suspension of all domestic flights, later adding also flights to and from Baghdad International Airport.

This measure would originally be until March 28 but was extended on March 26 until at least April 11.

The Iraqi government also urged people to stay inside as much as they could, but people were ignoring these warnings. Many mosques remained open and people kept gathering.

In an attempt to prevent the further spreading of the virus, Iraq stepped up with their measures and introduced a nationwide lockdown and a night curfew from March 24 until March 28.
