    "medical and administrative teams were dispatched to the southern borders with Mali "to prevent infiltration of a suspect case through this border which is more than 2200 km long, where health checks are already in place.

    Local administrative sources and traders operating in the region between the towns of Kayes, a real lung trade between the two countries, and Aioun, in south-eastern Mauritania, said AFP that it had resulted in the "actual closing of the border as of last night" (Friday).


    "The authorities have informed us that the closure was very strict and
    that all who are taken in contravention with respect to the prohibition of
    crossing the border will be severely punished "
