The National Center for Disease Control said Friday it had begun screening of flights arriving at Mitiga International Airport.

The center indicated that the screening will include all air, land, and seaports in the country, as part of its plan to prevent coronavirus spread into Libya.

It explained that the quarantine Unit of the center’s International Health Oversight Office has provided all outlets with specialized thermal cameras to detect any suspected cases of respiratory diseases.
