Algeria halts travel to Europe over coronavirus


Algeria's Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad announced Monday a suspension of all scheduled travel links with Europe in a bid to forestall the spread of coronavirus, AFP reported.

The measure, to take effect from Thursday, will hit all "air and sea travel to and from European countries", the premier's office said. 

"This exceptional suspension... will be accompanied by a repatriation plan for our citizens currently in the countries concerned," it said.
