Botswana's COVID Border Checks Rile Truck Drivers
Botswana’s strict COVID-19 border checks have riled truck drivers, who say they spend days waiting to be cleared. Botswana has so far confirmed only 35 COVID-19 cases and one death but began requiring the border testing amid rising concerns about imported infections. Truck drivers are growing frustrated with long delays at Botswana’s borders due to required COVID-19 testing. The truckers say they wait for up to five days before being cleared to deliver goods in Botswana, or transit through the country.
