Emirates, one of the largest long-haul airlines in the world, has suspended flights from Pakistan after passengers tested positive for the coronavirus in Hong Kong, it said on Wednesday.

The Dubai public carrier, which operates limited services due to the coronavirus pandemic, said the temporary suspension was effective on June 24.

We are coordinating closely with the various authorities and will examine and implement all the additional measures necessary to satisfy all parties before resuming Pakistan’s services, a spokeswoman for Reuters told AFP.

The airline will continue to operate flights to Pakistan, she said.

The rate of COVID-19 cases has increased rapidly in Pakistan, a country of 207 million people, but Prime Minister Imran Khan has ruled out a nationwide lockdown. He recorded 3,755 deaths and 188,926 infections.

This week, the government of South Korea temporarily banned most people from Pakistan and Bangladesh from entering after registering an increase in coronavirus cases in these countries.

It also halted non-scheduled flights between South Korea and the two countries, although diplomats and urgent business travel are exempt from the entry suspension.

Ten players from the Pakistans cricket team slated to take part in an upcoming series in England tested positive for COVID-19 this week.
