The US government says it will be evacuating its citizens from Malawi on April 24 due to the raging coronavirus disease.

US to evacuate citizens out of Malawi on April 24

The Department of State says it is preparing an evacuation flight for private US citizens on a reimbursable basis, leaving Lilongwe Kamuzu International Airport on or around April 24, 2020.

“The flight will be traveling from Lilongwe to Dulles International Airport (IAD) in the Washington, DC metro area via Addis Abba and Dublin,” says the department.

The department says the estimated cost for the flight is $2,000-3,000 per seat.

“US citizens who are interested and prepared to travel should immediately contact the US Embassy Consular section,” says the department.

The department says the citizens should not call the US embassy for confirmation, saying they would be contacted with additional information.

“US Embassy Malawi urges all persons who are considering repatriation to do so at this time.

Each traveler needs to ensure that they supply a valid email address and telephone number at which they can be contacted.  Once contacted, please respond immediately,” says the department.

President Peter Mutharika has ordered a coronavirus lockdown from Saturday midnight.

There are 16 cases of coronavirus in Malawi with two deaths.

I think the Covid 19 pandemic is merely a cover up for repatriating their citizens, the real reason must be the fragile political situation in Malawi especially as we approach the court ordered fresh presidential election.

why propergander on this matter did we ask to know how much cost is to fly going to USA? this is no sense we know that they are rich so why the want to show off. if the want to take their citizens they must just take them not to make us. in fact they are dying more than us here. very soon America is going to be down because of their rudeness God takes down people who think they are the best and replace them with fair people

Exactly my point also. Instead of living like Kings and Queens in Malawi, there’s nothing Trump has prepared for their safety at home. Chances of getting infected in the US are 80% compared to living in Ntchisi and teaching maths.
