Pakistan closed its border with Afghanistan in a bid to control the spread of the coronavirus, Monday, March 16.

The major border crossing, Torkham, located in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province is closed for 15 days as safety measures are ramped up by Pakistan authorities.

The move comes as the number of infections rises in the country and nations around the world act swiftly to restrict travel in an attempt to slow the global outbreak.

Pakistan also announced it was sealing it's border with Iran.

Pakistan shares a roughly 900-kilometer border with Iran, where officials have confirmed that COVID-19 has killed more than 800 people and that well over 14,000 others have been infected.

Pakistan’s border with landlocked Afghanistan stretches to nearly 2,600 kilometers, with several authorized entry points for people and trade as well as transit activities. Afghan officials have confirmed 21 coronavirus cases, linking them with the Iranian outbreak.
